Great value for money!
Been happy generally with the car, except for the air conditioning. I've basically changed everything except the compressor. (hopefully it will last longer).
Also, brake cylinder needed replacement after around 40,000kms.
Paint job is in excellent condition. Still on original paint and other OEM parts since day 1. No rust spots anywhere, despite my not having rustproofing.
Fantastic to drive and cheap to maintain. And it has never broken down on the road these past 12 years that I've owned it.
No rust anywhere. Although the interior could have been much better. I may finally change the seats, after a friend complained - it was a long 2 and 1/2 drive!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
