Summary:

Perfect car for a student

Faults:

Drove over border stone - suspension of front left wheel repaired.

Got hit by another car in parking, right door, bumper and wing damaged.

General Comments:

The car is great fun to drive in city, very good acceleration till app. 50 kph, easy to park (It passes in such spaces where no other car except maybe SMART will pass). It goes surprisingly well on speedway as well, with only driver inside I got it running at 179 kph on horizontal track.

Very stable driving.

Silent motor.

Comfortable seats in front.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
