A really good first-car!


Many light electrical problems.

Much rust in doors, luggage, around the wheelhouse ands the front window.

Some water leaks due to manufacture related problems.

The seats are in bad shape.

And our "la cuaracha"-horn doesn't work any longer due to water-injection.

Some water problems with the head-light.

The back-seat frame has a lot of rust.

General Comments:

Though the seats are worn out they are surprisingly comfortable.

The engine are in a very good shape if you are counting with it's age.

A bit to much plastic in the interior makes the feeling of the car a bit cheap.

Some bad smells, but not due to smoking.

Though many negative things the car has a good feeling over it and a lot of attitude.

A really trustworthy car with a great handling that starts anytime during the hour of the day.

It doesn't drink to much gas and it can manage 195 km/h!!!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
