Good bargain for a low price


Temperature indicator went wrong. The repair place could not find the reason, so inspected the entire injection system. It cost me 150 dollars, while the real reason - a temperature indicator - cost 3 dollars.

General Comments:

With a 1.6 engine, it is a powerful enough car, easy to manoeuvre in the city.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
