General Comments:

One of the best cars ever build.

It is a reliable and good quality car. I never stood beside the road stranded with this car. It's got good acceleration, but not a great top speed +/- 160km/h. The interior still looks new and the car is very conferrable. It is a gas guzzler around 6-7km/L.

The car is still completely original, the engine never been opened, no oil leaks. Braking is fairly good (front disk brakes). I love driving this car, it's got a good sounding engine and the auto box is superb. Great for a 20- year old car!!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
