The safest car you can buy for the money


The car is very reliable for its age.

It has already had an engine overhaul, and lately it has suffered from small electric faults, which are very cheap to fix.

General Comments:

When you drive it you feel like you're driving a tank, it's big, heavy and feels very safe.

It is very comfortable, but since I've put in new "shocks" the ride is very hard, I'm just waiting for them to soften a little bit.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
