Summary:

A sleek cheap head turner

Faults:

Airbag problem, but replaced under warranty. power locks blew also replaced under warranty. engine would stop running (even while driving!) also fixed under warranty. vibrating brake pedal and steering wheel while hitting the brake to stop, fixed with 60 euro cooling system, problems (had to replace fridge) secondary air injection blew (I ripped it out no need for it) an some minor problems not very important.

General Comments:

The car is quite fast for it's engine very comfortable, although it's small. handles superb on the road. and very econonomic. I've had it for 8 1/2 years I love it! even if I bought a new car I would think twice about giving it away. it still turns heads after all these years, good price for the money. and very good interior quality. I have been very sentimentally attached to it...

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
