A very comfortable car even in a village road

Faults:

Fore lights went dead at 107.000 km.

Back storage cover broke very badly.

It's brakes are not so hard and needed often brake adjustment.

General Comments:

This car is very comfortable comparing its cheap price.

It's inner space feels so good to me and my parents.

I am a hunter and this car drives so good in worst roads while I was hunting in uncivilized areas.

It is also as good as other cars on turning points and grabs the road.

Summary:

It's just for driving

Faults:

You can hear the tires spinning, especially on rough surfaces.

Build quality is inadequate.

You can hear crackles from the dashboard.

General Comments:

It's the car for someone who wants a real sport car which is cheap. When you step on the gas pedal, you can hear the sonorous sound spread from the exhaust. It provokes you to climb to higher revs. The engine is sluggish at low revs, but when it reaches 3000rpm it wakes up and begins to rev fast, up to 7500.

Any given order to the gas pedal, results in power immediately. And you are not disturbed by any system like ABS, ESP, ASR..(etc)

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I had a white Tempra Turbo Diesel Estate for two years and loved it. The digital readout instruments were novel at the time and disliked by some, but not by me. The speed was easy to see in a big red number above everything else. It was a lovely reliable car that was uncommon and distinctive. The only fault was a persistent rattle in the rear door that I was never able to cure. Otherwise- it went like a ferret up hills, accelerating past others struggling and panting. One advantage of diesels is the lack of wiring that much reduces ignition problems. Under the bonnet, it's all pipes!
