Summary:

Cheap is not always very bad

Faults:

Well, that's a family car and we have it since new. Nice looking while couple years old, then all kinds of problems : it will not start if it's too cold (below -20),burns oil and what ever you can think off. The car needs to be rebuilt at 80 000 km which seems to be really funny compared to the Nissan 240sx that I have now with about 170 000 miles on it.

General Comments:

After all, I can't sell the car because I love it, rides very smooth, handles great when it runs, but you need ear plugs for long trips if don't wanna get deaf. Seats are very comfortable, but very small trunk space. Rust, hell yeah, after twenty years you could run the car like the Flintstones, matters NOT what you do to keep the rust away. Does not turn on snow, but it's like a small tank during the rest of the year, matters not if you are on or Off road. BUT the car is still on the road after 22 years and who knows how many kilometers :)

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
