Summary:

Comfortable car for little money

Faults:

The left rear brake lost some power at 200000 km. After cleaning it, the full function was restored.

New battery at 210000km.

General Comments:

This car is cheap to purchase and to own.

The weight is low (+/- 800 kg) which makes it cheap for taxes. The petrol use is nice (14 km/l)

The bodywork looks it has been designed for grandfather and -mother, but you're inside the car.

It's a really huge car. My bike fits the car with all doors closed.

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

Summary:

A practical and underrated car

Faults:

Not much. A girling brake caliper locked after replacing the pads.

Front wheel bearings are due for replacement.

The engine leaks some oil, but nothing to worry about: it's caused by bad engine sealings.

General Comments:

If maintained properly, even at this age the car is very reliable and economical to run.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
