Reliable, cheap, worth every penny
I have recently had to change the front brake pads since they were beginning to rust.
A perfectly reliable car. I travel about 140 km per day and my Matiz has never let me down. Temperatures in Sweden range from +35C to -20C and I have never had any problems starting the car in the mornings.
I fill the gas tank about twice a week and this is highly appreciated when it comes to how economical the car is.
AC unit is very strong, I can never have the temperature at maximum for too long cause it gets too cold/hot. Same with the seat heating mechanism.
On the negative side, the ride is slightly shaky when driving at speeds over 80-90km/h. If it's windy you will feel it in the steering wheel. Some rust problems which can be attributed the road salt used in Sweden.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
