Summary:

Nice car

Faults:

Catalytic convertor is finished after 150.000 Km, but it has worked longer than expected.

Tires, which are used for performance such as 185/55/14, get damaged because of the bad roads in Turkey.

Alternator has broke down.

Some oil leakage from the motor and gear box.

Big cars usually don't give you enough road when you want to pass them.

Poor interior comfort.

General Comments:

Very good acceleration.

Very reliable motor and mechanicals. I made 178.000KM, but car still shows the same performance.

Very good handling.

Good brakes.

Summary:

A Masterpiece in Small Cars

Faults:

Nothing has gone wrong with the car.

I only need to change the tyres because of the kilometer it did.

General Comments:

Unlike its small looks, its interior is very spacious and comfortable.

It really handles very well. It's a joy to drive. You got that feeling when you trash it out. But in the city traffic, it's also very relaxing and easy to drive.

The performance of the car is not bad. Because of its light-weight, it is very quick and agile. Maybe an air-filter and a performance chip will make it really quick.

The looks of the car is very good. Especially in silver.

It's also a very economical car. Even you drive fast or slow, it sips fuel. Now that is a good thing.

I recommend this car to everyone because it's the best.

I totally agree with interior thing. I own a 106 XS and I actually manage to put 8 (including me) people in car. it really has a large space inside.

What you said about the air filter and chip really works. I took my XS from 90bhp up to 112bhp just with a good air filter and new chip. now it keeps up with the likes of a VTR and is not far from the VTS.
