Summary:

Great family car for a resaonabile price

Faults:

Holders of balance (forks) had to be replaced for 70 Euros.

Door handlss (door-locks) replaced 100 Euros, told that is classic problem as time passes.

General Comments:

Car is now 10 years old (2008). Got it cheap for 3000 Euros. No bigger problems for now, but time will tell.

Parts are cheap and they are not a problem if you are in Europe. Low fuel consumption 6-8 liters can vary from City to Interstate drive. Big plus for a rear DOWN bumper to put long stuff in. Great family car for right price. Handel`s well in town or outside, keep it over 2000 RPM when Turbo is ON, below that is snail ride.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
