The best car you can buy for the money


Replaced the top.

Oil leak on front shocks, all 4 replaced.

Air valve was not functioning and replaced.

Whole car repainted because of fading paint and two rusted spots.

General Comments:

It is not a fast car, but it is a lot of fun to drive especially in corners. It handles great and has astonishing grip.

Very reliable although after years of hard driving, it keeps running.

I definitely recommend it to everyone seeking for a great low budget sports car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
