Good, easy to drive, but poor on winter


Nothing has gone wrong with the car yet.

General Comments:

I have had much fun with this car. I have owned it for about 4 months.

It's handles great.

But the car is extremely noisy.

The seats are uncomfortable for long rides.

The car is great fun at summer, but on winter it's not so good. I don't dare driving on snow again. We think it might be because it's so small and doesn't weight much.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
