Summary:

Cheap, reliable and fun car

Faults:

Not much, just the normal wear. New brakes once in a while. Rust is a big problem though.

General Comments:

My girlfriend bought this car in 2002 and we have used it as a car nr. 2 ever since. I am using it on a daily basis.

It is very cheap to repair on, and really fun to drive. And surprisingly reliable, especially the engine, who just runs and runs and runs.

With its old fashioned technology it is a bit of a sports car: Rear wheel drive, no ABS, no esp, no servo.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
