Summary:

A unique character!

Faults:

The injection circuit had to be serviced at 60000.

At about 80000, the distribution belt was replaced, but the new one had been not correctly mounted and broke when I drove at about 110 km/h. But the engine was not damaged at all! It simply needed a new belt.

A connexion for the ignition had to be serviced at 140000.

At 160000, the gearbox needed a service : some bearings needed to be replaced. But I had an accident before and I suspect it to have damaged it.

General Comments:

A great car!!!

A very robust and pleasant engine, simple to maintain and economical.

Very, very fun to drive, in particular on sinuous roads.

Extremely handy in the city.

Very stable, the 4WD transmission is useful on winter.

I love it!

A lovely little car, with a lot of character!

General Comments:

This is a very nice car, very fun to drive in town! Nervous, but not very power-full, she is good for young drivers!

But it's not easy to drive it on mountain roads...
