Its works, but nothing more


Engine blew up, put it back together, and it worked fine.

General Comments:

Very uncomfortable, slow, hard to drive, has the turning radius of a small bus, but cheap. dirt cheap. its made of solid metal and simply doesn't die. if you are under 5'11", you can sit reasonably.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
