Summary:

A very reliable and powerful BARGAIN!

Faults:

The brakes went wrong on the front of the car, I fixed it myself.

General Comments:

For a diesel, this car was very cheap to run, was very reliable and powerful. I had a 16ft Avondale mayfair and this pulled it like it was nothing.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I forgot to mention that the rear brake cylinders needed replacement at 105000KM and the coolant heating line tube burst at 120000KM (original replacement tube very expensive - approx. £90 for part alone!)
