My engine blew at 380,000 km.

Rust is present on the rear fenders.

The gas consumption it's normal for a almost 30 year old car 14-20l/100km in the city.

General Comments:

It's a very stable even in tight corners.

The handling is almost perfect even whithout servo.

It is a big car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
