Summary:

It's a very good van, useful, inexpensive

Faults:

It is not a strongly built van. Light crashes bend the bumpers easily.

Seats are little uncomfortable for long distance trips.

Some noise.

The air intake is so low, and collects water on some flooded roads. It's made to absorb water, and a connecting rod bent. Easy fix by a non specialized mechanic in Mexico, runs like new.

General Comments:

Very reliable van, always starts.

It's very easy to get in through the big doors.

Very good mileage.

Poor safety in case of a strong front crash; your legs are only 30cm from the bumper.

Very little turn radius, easy to park.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
