It won't let you down


First of all the carburetor was worn at 180000 km.

Then the suspension system appears to be bad since 150000.

The flexible joint that links between the driving wheel and steering mechanism begin to be in a loose condition due to the wear in the joints it appears mostly on off-road driving.

I am really asking why the wire linking from the pedal to the clutch Pass through this long Path.

General Comments:

It is really a good car, very easy to drive and adopted to it.

Rarely when you needed to be fixed just once or so a year so it is reliable, but not on high speed man must not drive it more than 120 Km/Hr to feel safe.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
