General Comments:

This car is what it is, it has been surprisingly more reliable than I expected it to be, and still manages to deliver me almost 40 mpg with only using a quart oil within 2,000 miles. There is no visible signs off smoke or a leak either.

I will continue to drive this car as long as it lasts, and cannot be driven anymore. The car's ride is pretty noisy, but loud music fixes that, and it is not at all powerful, it has no balls whatsoever, but it was not made to be fast. This is also my first car too, and I got it when I was 16.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
