Great car for little money!


Clutch cable was torn, but was very cheap to replace.

Front window cleaning mechanism broke down.

General Comments:

It's a great small car. I am very pleased with it.

Very low running cost, and spare parts are cheap and easy to get.

Fuel consumption is 7l/100km in the city, and around 6L/100km on open roads. The car is very jumpy, and has great acceleration for a car this small.

It's very good for the city, although it handles like a boat on water at high speeds on the highway. FUN!

I would recommend it to anyone who would like a cheap car with lots of equipment.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
