Summary:

It's funny, but it's fun

Faults:

The cabin lights had blown out.

The tail light blown out too.

Sometime the meter panel light for EPS, gear position and the doors have gone crazy.

There's no last row seat belts.

General Comments:

From outside view, this car look funny just like Spongebob cartoon character. But inside, it's spacey.

The fuel consumption was OK, even though it's only 1.1CC, because of the body weight and 4 gear automatic transmission, it used a bit more fuel than necessary. Luckily it has multipoint fuel injection.

It's not as fast as people say. I cruised 80km/h, over that is not recommended. Don't worry, it's easy to overtake slow cars as the top speed was 135km/h.

Bringing lots of luggage was easy, just fold the rear seats or both the two rows.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
