Best car for the money you will pay for it


Main brake cylinder and water pump failed after 114000km

Poor quality electrical system (ventilation is not working), it is sometimes wet inside the trunk. Because of that it is rusty on some places.

It burns a lot of oil.

You can have problems when shifting in the reverse.

General Comments:

Spare parts are easy to get and almost everybody can fix it. Fuel consuption is reasonable (about 8.5L in the city and 6.5 on freeway).

It would be better if it had 5 speed gearbox.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
