Summary:

Perfect and reliable city car

Faults:

After one year exploitation, I have changed the buffer. Everything cost me about 150 Euros.

Everything else is practically perfect.

General Comments:

I bought this car to ride in the city, and I didn't make a mistake. This is the best city car. Of course it goes very fast on motorways. I have reached 160 km/h (5th gear, 4200 rpm) and it was not the limit.

My model has an air conditioning!

Of course in future, I am going to live in the country, so I will have to sell this car. I can drive off roads quite easy with STARLET, but I could easily break it because it is not high.

This car with 7 litres fuel can drive 100km.

Exploitation cost me (without fuel) 500 Euros during two years.

I recommend this car if you are looking for a city car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
