The only problem was the fuel pump which I replaced but that was it's original and was only giving out a poor output, it didn't actually stop.

General Comments:

It being a fairly unknown and not widely seen car it has been incredibly reliable and is very nippy.The best overall car we've ever had!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
