Drives way better than it looks
One of the front lights was damaged. Cost way more money than I expected to fix.
Exhaust pipe was rotten the year I bought it. This was fixed easily and rather cheaply.
Excellent car, always runs without a hitch.
It handles very smoothly, good grip in all kinds of weather.
The fuel usage varies; when it's cold the car seems to use more fuel, also on longer trips.
I was amazed that even after 11 years I could drive it at 160 km/h without any trouble. I didn't want to go any faster than that though, because of the engine noise, which really got loud at that speed. I generally cruise at 140-150 km/h, so I have a little power left if necessary, and have no trouble with that with this car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
