Summary:

Excellent, reliable and inexpensive family car

Faults:

When I bought the car it was not new, I had to change the shock absorbers and bearings.

I had to change at 150k the water pump.

At 190k, the ignition switch.

General Comments:

It's an excellent family car. Even though it has 222,000 it runs great. The motor is in perfect condition and I still intend to keep it for a while.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
