Summary:

Slow, but cheap

Faults:

The biggest problem is the rust. The coachwork got a bit rusty, so the metal plates began to loosen up. The floor is eaten by the rust a bit as well, so there are few small holes in the corners.

Homo-kinetic joints and the axles wore out and had to be replaced.

General Comments:

It's a rather slow car and it's age is obvious. It is, however, very cheap to ride, easy to repair, and rather reliable.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
