I have had to replace the shock absorbers. They had not been replaced since new!

I bought this car for a meager 1800 Euro (CHEAP in Norway).

I have driven 30000km with it. Zero problems.

It always starts, and it is a good winter car!

Summary:

Reliable, comfortable cheap used automobile

Faults:

There is a little bit of rust around the fenders. Rust and corrosion seems to be a problem for these cars. Otherwise the only thing wrong with it is the door handle for the trunk. This is a station wagon.

General Comments:

I'm was very pleased with the car, even though I haven't owned it for a long time.

The stereo system is HORRIBLE though, and should be swapped out.

Relatively comfortable, with A/C, heated seats, electric windows, mirrors, locks etc.

The 1.6 liter engine does well enough. I wasn't expecting much at all, and I am a little bit positively surprised at its performance. Still, it is only about 112 HP.
