Incredibly still working, heavy noisy, but has something different in design than other cars


Transmision shaft got a bit noisy, wibrations at 80 km/h.but I changed for new and now is OK.

Engine oil pressure is less than 4 bar, but the car has already 250000 kilomters.

General Comments:

This car has very soft suspension and doesn't hold properly in corners, but this is normal car not for fast driving, anyway the engine is to small for that heavy vehicle.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
