One of the most reliable cars


The car had only 1 fault during the last 100.000 km.

The break down occurred at a distance of 162.000 km when the regulator of generator failed. This is a common problem with 70A generators!

General Comments:

In Austria it is a very common model - and a lot of people a searching for the 2.0 Diesel engine with 45kW, because its fuel efficiency and reliability are well known (5.7l/100km).

The stability in curves is great - a lot of modern cars aren't able to hold the speed with this car, even they are more powerful.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
