Summary:

Great garbage!

Faults:

The electrics, of course.. Central locking not working.

Stereo is dead.

Passenger seat electrical adjustment does not work.

Also a lot of noise from the suspension when passing over a bump.

Engine leaking oil.

Warning light for faulty brakes lights up every time I touch the brake pedal, but the brakes are renovated and tested.

The rear axle have been renovated by previous owner.

General Comments:

I just love it! It really is a character of its own.

The car is big and heavy and underpowered.

The ergonomics of the interior makes you laugh every time you look at it.

It is totally "outdated".

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
