Best car for the money (at least in Norway)


Generally not a lot, but electrical and transmission problems accrued.

Lately I had problems with the dynamo, but it was fixed in 20 minutes and it wasn't expensive.

Different story about the transmission. Gear change is not very precise, and nobody actually know why!??? Everything is in perfect order and it should be working perfectly...? But it isn't. But I can live with that.

General Comments:

A good car. Nice seats, comfortable.

Driving is nearly perfect for a car of this class and age.

Dynamic engine and low driving costs.

Easy to repair "small" things by yourself.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
