Great all-round car, reliable, economic, and entertaining


The lever for the gas tank became loose but were fixed by the dealer.

The plastic sump guard under the car fell off due to some heavy duty off roading.

The rubber isolation at the tip of the driver's window leaks air, causing noise.

General Comments:

Handles very well, but needs some more power.

Great for off-roading.

Interior is comfortable, pleasant, and practical. That's what its meant to be.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
