Summary:

Great car, great design, Best Buy!!!

Faults:

Nothing much, just regular servicing every 10000Km (oil & filters), and one big service at 120000Km (oils, filters, belts, glow plugs, battery, brakes, some parts of suspension)

General Comments:

Performance are not the high end, but considering that car has 90hp and 1280Kg, it's fast enough in all situations If you don't expect impossible.

Fuel consumption is low, same as on every other 90hp TD engine.

Handling and suspension are very good balanced between sport and comfort.

There is plenty of room inside the cabin and boot.

Conclusion is: Great car, with cool charisma & style, the real Best Buy!!!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
