Not exciting, but it got me from A to B
I discovered small areas of rust bubbling up around the boot-lid when I got it home. I should have done a better job of inspecting it before I bought it.
When I sold it the old Violet was consuming a lot of oil, I was topping it up every couple of weeks.
It has to be the most boring looking car I've owned, you could lose it in a large-ish car park.
Handling wasn't particularly good, but the steering and gearbox were OK.
Performance was only so-so, it didn't like to be rushed.
The Violet, in case you can't remember it, was a compact-mid size saloon that was bigger than a Sunny, but smaller than a Bluebird. I believe it was replaced by the Nissan Stanza.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
