The best small car on the road


Seems to have a rattling sounds when I go over bumpy roads at around 40km/h. Inside the engine, the part leading to the exhaust pipe is rusted.

General Comments:

Great car, I love it. It's small enough to weave in and out of traffic and fast enough to keep up with the bigger boys. Unfortunately the rear seats don't have that much leg room, however the front is very comfortable.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
