Summary:

Great car!

Faults:

Now at 238500, the brake rotors have to be replaced. They're not good any more.

I think there is a hole in the benzine tank. So when I fill the tank, benzine leaks out, not too much, a little bit here and there. I fixed the problem by not buying a full tank of benzine. He he..

General Comments:

Well for a car that is 13 years old, and that has traveled 238000km, it rules. It's really reliable, starts all the time. Even at winter time here in Norway, when temperatures get to minus 20C, it starts without problems.

I'm really happy with this car! I will buy the new Colt CZT as my next car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I sold it. For 5,000Nok. Somewhat over 300,000km.

It was begining to mould inside, back seats.

Would not start when left to overnight in wet/moisture.Problem with fordelerlok (Norwegian).

And the new owner crashed it after two weeks.Total write-off..!Colt rip!
