Very reliable, it's a lot of fun to drive this car!
Generally, most of the issues came from normal wear of a car, which is 16 years old:
Leaking water hose when bought.
Suspension requires regular maintenance.
Exhaust system replaced.
"Hold" (signaling A/T problems) flashed once.
Inefficient heating and ventilating (no AC).
Pretty loud over 100km/h.
Automatic transmission with 1.6 16v makes it quite expensive: 12-13l/100km is way too much.
Not extraordinary when it comes to handling, especially on wet surfaces.
VERY reliable, a bit of a sporty position behind the wheel.
Good looking for a 16-year old car.
This is a perfect choice for a first car for a young driver.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
