Summary:

Cheap, fast, reliable little car

Faults:

I had a lot of rust to repair when I bought it. For example: undercarriage, doors,...

I had some problems with the exhaust, nothing major.

My battery started to die out, I recharged it twice and now everything is O.K.

General Comments:

The car is really nice to drive. It is very light (850kg) and it has 1.6 16V engine with 95 horse power so it's really fast. The parts are really cheap and you can get them almost everywhere. I always used second hand parts, because they are way cheaper.

Handling is not so good. You can feel the car moving when you corner.

I had some problems with the windows, nothing major, they are just hard to open/close.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Summary:

Faults:

The engine is just fine. Nothing went wrong in 10 years. I needed to check on the brakes. The only problem is rust.

So engine works perfectly, but the car body is being attacked by rust.

General Comments:

Real small gas consumption.

Cheap overall maintenance.

No luxury of course.

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