Summary:

A great fun - when it's not sick

Faults:

Too many electrical problems - battery, coil, alternator, sparking cables, bulbs.

The dash plastic has a very poor quality - the glove box cover and the fuses cover, as well as the gear handle were broken.

Metallic paint doesn't last the Israeli sun.

Apart from these - only normal wear.

General Comments:

Though the reliability of the car is not what I expected (was supposed to be better than the Fiat!) and the maintenance cost is very high, the way the car handles the road is a great experience.

For the price it costs in Israel (equal to a VW Golf 5 years older!), I think it's the best buy.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
