Slow, thirsty, weak, but air conditioned car
Had to change exhaust system two times, now running on my third exhaust which is near it's end.
The digital clock never worked.
The factory radio-cassette player died a few times in five years, now replaced with a Sony radio-casette player.
A $400 repair because of rough idle running.
Back bearings got worn out two times ($20 for repairs).
Electrical problems with right back positional lights, the light bulb was changed a few times, but still doesn't work.
Rust on every door and on the side.
The tank opener gets stuck, always have to use the emergency pull tab and open it with a key or a coin.
Sometimes the air condition doesn't work (maybe needs refilling).
Consumes up to 16L/100km.
Has terrible accelerations, even at 5400rpm, you still have a feeling that the car isn't going.
Loud at RPMs higher than 2000.
Back seats give you backache if you drive more than an hour in the back.
Front seats are also bad, you get tired very soon.
Plastic is low quality, squeaks all over the car.
The built in speakers (four of them) are OK, if they were just a bit stronger.
Doesn't like fast driving or playing with gears, 4 of 5 times when you aggressively switch from 2nd to 3rd gear it gets stuck and you have to easily switch it to third.
All in all, I'm OK with the car because it has air conditioning, but the fuel consumption drives me mad. You can't do more than 350km with a 50L tank.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
