A very good bargain car with all the basics, but no luxury


The heater/ventilation fan of the passenger compartment stopped at about 55000 km.

Supporting points of the rear parcel shelf in the luggage compartment loosened at about 50000 km (it took only a screw to repair).

General Comments:

Easy to drive, reacts quickly to controls.

Good performance for the small size.

Narrow passenger compartment, very small luggage compartment.

Front window may get foggy in cold and very humid weather.

Really low operation and maintenance cost.

A good buy for max. 2 persons with the capability to occasionally accommodate 4.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
