General Comments:

The car was brand new when I bought it. In general, car is working just perfectly, nothing has gone wrong although too much km for 10 months car. The car was built in Turkey, only a small scratch in the dashboard from the factory - never mentioned to the dealer. It is not fast due to its weight. Steering is good (not as the MX5 I also known), brakes are not like Italian cars.

Gear lever is very good. Radio on/off button is not very comfortable. Driver's seat is squealing sometimes, windscreen cleaners leave dead points on the screen - all those are minor things that you can live with.

Service is quite expensive for 1.4 car (MX5 is 2.0, 2007 model and costs almost half). Very comfortable car, you don't listen to the motor working below 4,000 rpm, able to be driven for hours. Fuel consumption is 7 Lt/100 km. NCAP 5 stars.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
