Summary:

Unpretentious and good value for money

Faults:

Nothing.

General Comments:

It is not very comfortable, but I knew it would not be before I bought it. It is very easy to handle with a responsive engine and reasonable acceleration. The instrumentation could be better as the fog light switch and rear window demister switch are hidden by the spokes of the steering wheel. However, it fulfills my requirements more than adequately, I enjoy driving it, I like the visibility one gets from being high up and find the engine substantially better than my previous pick-up, a Mitsubishi L200.

Overall I am very happy with it.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
