General Comments:

In general this car is quite reliable, it was owned by my grandfather, and about a year and a half ago (March 2004) I purchased the car, since my grandfather died and then in May 2004, I started driving it.

I really find it comfortable and in general it's quite easy to park it, since you have a large back window. It handles quite well, and I must say that it has quite good road holding.. compared to my mum's car.. Toyota Yaris (imported 2nd Hand from Japan).

In general I can't complain about the car, except for the Performance.. the engine is quite underpowered and needs some more power..

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
