Summary:

A passion to its owner

Faults:

Generally the mechanical strength is satisfactory and I didnt experience any failures, but had the following minor problems; noisy gear-changing sometimes; (only when hurried-up).

Front-right shock absorber (which was manufactured in Turkey) had an oil leak because of a crack when the total distance counter showed 22.000kilometers.

General Comments:

This car is a polite looking sedan as well as having a sportive external view. Performance is the most considerable positive feature with it. Its light chassis (930kg) is carried by the power-full 95hp engine. The performance progressed even to a better status as it's engine oil was refreshed more frequently (I did this every 3.000km, but NOT 10.000km as routinely recommended)

Summary:

A pleasure to drive

Faults:

I had only minor problems like a rusted electrical mirror adjustment switch, or a broken windshiled water pump. No other faults up to now.

Engine (or A/C) makes a strange noise in some rpms, but it is not a big problem.

General Comments:

I love my car. It is very easy to drive, quick in city traffic (under 100 Km/h). Has a pretty small turning radius which makes it very easy to handle in crowded and narrow streets. A real city car...
