Summary:

Good quality economic car and a future classic

Faults:

Worn interior, in particular seats and dashboard.

Some rust on the bonnet and front wings.

Some steering parts worn (cheap to buy, though).

General Comments:

Extremely good mileage, especially if the car has all its filters and oil changed regularly.

This is the most reliable car I've ever seen, especially as regards the engine, which is an air-cooled one and needs good quality oil and change every 5/6000 kms, and it will easily last for ages.

If you buy one, paint any parts that do not look good and don't forget to inspect the inner part of the bonnet.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
