Great stylish and sexy performer

Faults:

The cover of the fuel tank is not lined up with the rest of the car.

The cover of the windshield fell off.

General Comments:

This car is being a great purchase so far. There are still some quality issues, but really minor ones that do not effect the overall review of the car in my opinion. It is cheaper to have, it is cheaper to insure here in Brazil, and it is more economic than the Volkswagen Golf.

And the fact that it can run on alcohol or gasoline makes this car an even better deal.

My car has the Blue&Me system, which is great for the technology lovers and also have the Skydome sunroof, which makes the car looks gorgeous, but if you are tall, you should definitely avoid it. The 17 inch alloy wheels are also a must.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
