Summary:

Fabulous car for the price

Faults:

Needs here and there a few new parts.

General Comments:

The kappa is a great car given the relatively low purchase price. It's fast, comfy and spacious. Fuel consumption is certainly too high. Not a great city car, but fabulous on highways. Mine has 245/35 18" tires on Aluminum rims with a low suspension, which makes it the best drive at high speeds, absolutely stable. I got a corner mechanic whose specialty are Italian cars so anything I need is (relatively) cheap. Interior is really nice indeed.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
