Summary:

It gets you where you wanna go, but don't expect more than that

Faults:

The wind screen wiper had to be replaced after 3000 kilometers (failed to remove anything that was a bit more solid than clean water).

There is a rattling noise coming from practically every corner of the car. I have consulted with other owners and they all experienced the same problem. It does not seem to influence the performance or the functionality of the car.

General Comments:

I bought this car to replace my 12 year-old Suzuki Maruti as I wanted more comfort and safety and it lived up to these expectations.

The 1.0 liter engine is seriously underpowered, the 1.3 liter version seems to be a much better choice now.

The mileage is great (5.3 liters/100km).

The car handles pretty well especially around corners.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
