Summary:

A nice reliable ride, but watch out for the costs when something goes wrong with it

Faults:

The computer unit failed once which costs a lot of money.

This car sure rusts. When you want one be sure to check for rust in the places you least expect.

The car is expensive when something goes wrong with it.

General Comments:

Quite a comfortable ride for its age, but the interior bits rattle a bit when cornering.

It handles quite nice, but the major drawback is the lack of performance in combination with the automatic transmission...

The lack of power steering is not nice at all. My next car will have power steering.

The fuel consumption is good.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
