Simple and reliable


Minor rattling in and around the dashboard at low and medium RPM.

Problem with gear change from 1 to 2 gear, but only minor.

Had to change 2 wheel bolts on right front wheel. Broke off during wheel change.

Exhaust middle part rusted of (lot of road salt). that is changed.

General Comments:

Handling: A bit slow if you turn fast in high speeds.

Engine: Quick and reliable. No problem pulling small trailers.

Comfort: Simple controls. Window and AC all manual.

Noise can be a problem from the tires.

Done all repairs to the car myself. Very easy car to fix.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
