General Comments:

I give you just the facts for this car:

-Small running costs -that is only good thing for this "car".

-Handling the road is terrible! Fast driving in this car is only for suicidal people.

-Plate is so tiny that impact with a cat or a bird could end tragic. (For you, not for cat)

-Comfort? No way.

-Speed and acceleration? My 80 years old grandpa can run faster than this car.

-Steering is frustrating with that awful big non-ergonomic plastic steering wheel.

-Machine sounds like a dying goat. Imagine.

-Anything can go wrong with this car at anytime.

Keep away from this car for god sake!

It's a non sense because you got the car in 2004, so you don't know for real how many kilometers the car has run...

The speed is over 120km/h, not recommended indeed, with any car. Your grandfather is a car, because a human being can't go as fast?!

Summary:

It puts many more expensive cars to shame!

Faults:

Battery needed to be replaced (of course, due to mileage), also shock absorbers have been changed, minor rust problems on the right rear door, beside that no problems.

General Comments:

Not really great for fast cornering, but it starts like a formula 1:)

REALLY lots of space for the car of that size.

Ventilation and in-cabin warming is unbelieveably good.

Despite its mileage, car is showing no signs of wearing.

4,2/5,5 l of gas (open road/city) - like a first day!
