Excellent piece of Serbian craftsmanship



General Comments:

I am originally from Serbia, and was surprised when I found out that the vehicle is still in production today. When going to Serbia, I purchased a brand new one from Zastava automobili (Promet Beograd), with slight engine modifications (Pod filter system, EFI, etc. to 90HP), and added Air cond, power steering, CD stereo system, etc. from Zastava.

An excellent vehicle. The new one is quite fast (only 830KG, giving a good power-to-weight ratio). Only been driving for two weeks and it has been a pleasure to drive this vehicle after such a long time, especially a brand new one from our Zastava. 10/10.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
