Good, cheap, fun


It overheated once due to a split in the radiator, although it was 43 degrees Celsius that day.

Alternator failed due to old age, to be expected on a car this old.

General Comments:

I use the car daily for work, going off road, even on the beach sometimes. I tow small boats and jet skis and mostly I drive it very hard. the car is an excellent tool for work and fun to drive. its great!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
