Summary:

Great, great, great little thing

Faults:

ConNections to the ignition lock unit are jumping out many times.

Rusty floor.

Freezing before engine gets hot during the winter.

Front door windows are a serious arm killer.

Petrol pump once.

General Comments:

Fun to drive, open the sunroof and enjoy it.

Comfortable, after 300kms driving you are ok.

Gets anywhere, sometimes gets into places that powerfully cars don't, as it is higher than the others, put it in 1st gear big hills, tracks with sand or mud even flooded areas as well, as the engine and the exhaust are out of water, they are not a problem.

Runs with the gasoline smell, you fill it up and you will forget the last time you do it.

Modern cars dont have the same charm, they are power and speed, no charm or fun

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
