Speedy and economic


Well, this was not a new car, but I really knew what may be, as I decided to get the same car as that previous. Not much to say I loved first one, and didn't like else. Things going wrong were not much serious, as cooling pump leaking, silencer to replace, whistling brake, coolant temperature pickup faulty, sticky rear damper (knocking) at purchase.

I fixed all in trusted by me service, and within next year (10 000 km) had no need to visit.

General Comments:

I drove many cars, but this one I find exceptional for good power combined with comfortable automatic speed gear. This results in low RPM when driving moderate, silent inside and outside, good (comparing to engine volume) economy. No need to think about costs on highway, as fuel consumption reaches moderate 7/100 at 140/h

Good ventilation and heating and those small nice details working perfect.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
