Hard to get something better for that money!
The brakes had to be replaced after about 50.000 KM (but I don't know how long they had been there before I bought it) - though, they ARE really cheap!
Oil and gasoline filters were changed every 10.000 - 15.000 KM as a regular car service.
The seats (covers) wore badly and were replaced, but it's a matter of taste.
The seats are uncomfortable, but it's alright for shorter distances.
The engine is quite loud, but it's not bad sometimes being able to hear it run (most engine defaults are audible and easy detectable).
If not kept in a garage it can get quite rusty.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
