Summary:

The RunX is a very nice car if you are a simple person

Faults:

Nothing.

General Comments:

The car is quite good-looking from the outside. However, looks can be deceiving. The car is not very good looking on the inside, and the ride is not very smooth in addition to being very loud.

It's not very interesting to be in compared to other cars in its price range. I would pick a Honda Jazz over a RunX any day.

But still, the RunX is fast, spacious and gets you from point A to point B safely and on time. But it needs someone who is very simple to be called a nice car.

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