A truly excellent small car in it's day, though almost forgotten these days
Once, a heater hose burst. That's it.
The Datsun 1000 is a very well designed car and has excellent performance and economy due to it's low weight.
The design of the car is so simple that maintenance is made very simple. Even the most major overhaul can be attempted by the home mechanic with a basic toolkit.
The interior is somewhat small with poor leg room in the rear, but the seating is remarkably comfortable for it's age.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
