A high performance bargain. If you have one, don't sell it, is a Jewel


The fan belt has broken at 40.000 kilometers, and I got to call up manufacturer service in the highway. The other things that has gone wrong with the car were: Injectors had to be replaced each 20.000 kilometers, but the problem improved when I began to fill up the car with premium gasoline. Conditioned air doesn't function well, for hot climate is a great disadvantage.

General Comments:

In spite of the problems it's a cheap, comfortable, and a very fast car. Has a very good performance in highways, is very "big" for driving in a City and in towns you'll experience troubles parking the car, because is very long. Is economical and has a good acceleration performance: 100km/h in 6 seconds. Is the best TAXI-car in COLOMBIANS Cities. It bears use and overuse, you can find cars with 600.000 kilometers without problems in the engine. The other advantage is that the cost of car parts is more favorable than other Asiatic cars as: HYUNDAI, MAZDA, NISSAN, TOYOTA, KIA AND HONDA.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

100 kmh in only 6 seconds? I do not believe that. It is a 1,5 litres TBI with only 70 hp!
