Summary:

Economic citycar

Faults:

Ignition switch broken, would not start.

Coil broken, would not run.

Rust in back door so much could not open the rear door.

General Comments:

Poor door handles.

Poor seats.

Poor heater.

Funny little car with no performance, but that is good while otherwise it would have tilted!

Frankly, ours was punished quite hard, since I hated the small car and wished it would break down in order to get my parents to buy a better one. But all in all, it was funny to drive because of its oddity.

Great fuel economy!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
