Summary:

Love to drive it, but sometimes I need more power

Faults:

Seat-belt of the seat beside the driver is staked.

Once, there was a major fire on the wires they are connected with the dynamo.

At strong hard brakes, the direction of the front tires is not controllable although the steering is stable.

Now, the car is 3 years old, I feel it is not economic anymore in fuel consuming.

There is no indicator for the engine temperature! Only red signal when it's REALLY HOT! That makes me always worried because we are in hot country.

General Comments:

It is satisfying for the driver, but not the passengers in comfort. And it accelerates wonderfully when the driver is the only one in the car. That's why I think it's the best choice for the person who rarely has other passengers in the car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
