Summary:

Really fast city car

Faults:

At 64 000 the car started to be extremely noisy, almost as loud as a truck of some kind. The service told me that something went wrong with the valves (I don't really know), they fixed it and now it has the same sound as before.

No other faults apart from the interior scratching and rattling all the time (but that's normal in this category, age and quality.)

General Comments:

This little car is amazingly sporty. With four of us - each around 75 kg - it accelerates quickly to 90-100 km/h (haven't measured though).

I recommend it to everyone who needs a city car and is not very tall. I myself am 195 cm and I can hardly sit in the car - horrible :(

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
