The engine/transmission is leaking.

The handbrake (the cable) got rusted.

General Comments:

Rust is a big problem at this car. The brakes are not strong enough. The engine is very economic, but the car is too heavy for it.

The car is comfortable, big - easy to drive. For light offroad - OK.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
