My Silencer had a leak when I bought it.. I got it fixed and gave it a engine tune up. Didn't cost me much!

General Comments:

VERY VERY COMFORTABLE! Its very spacious and is a very smooth drive.

Has manual steering, but isn't much of a problem.

It's a good beginners car, very hardy and long running.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I replaced the Air Filters, Platinum Points and cleaned the Carburators, and now it does nearly 11-12 KM per Litre in the city! Amazing... how such a big vehicle can move so smoothly and pull so fast even though its powered by a 1300cc engine. One of the most comfortable vehicles ever, very spacious, and easy to drive, even though it has no power steering. Highly recommended vehicle!
