A perfect first car


Brakes mainly, but that is probably because I rely on them a lot and drive relatively fast.

General Comments:

It is a pretty good all rounder, handles corners well, even at high speeds and is easy to drive once you get used to it. I've reached a top speed of 130 km'h, but I've never really had a chance to try her out. If you try to push her beyond her limits you're pushing your luck.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
