Summary:

Fun is not a strait line

Faults:

The distributor in the engine stopped working suddenly at 150 000 km and had to be replaced. The repairing cost ΒΌ of the cars market value.

General Comments:

The handling is in the corners very good.

On an Autobahn the middle of the steering wheel feels though very imprecise an uncomfortable. It's hard and very tiring to drive fast with this car. You don't want to go over 130kmh.

The acceleration up to 100kmh is for a 1.6L motor quite satisfying.

The ride is more on the sporty side, and with 195/50 R15 tires you will notice every bump on the road.

The saloon is a bit noisy, especially with higher speeds.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
