Not fast or flash, but damn reliable
Radiator needed to be replaced at 150,000 K's.
Head gasket leak killed it at 283,000 K's, which killed it at the end.
Possibly the best car I've owned.
Had owned it for 18 years, and was driven every day and everywhere, and tackled all challenges like a champ.
Found it able to go 550-600 K's on a full tank of petrol. Which is pretty economical.
Body was hard and didn't pick up scratches / dings / dents easily.
Parts were cheaper to come by later on, as people sent them off to the scrap heap.
Easy car to learn how to do basic maintenance on - oil, spark plugs etc.
Wish they still built this car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
