Great car! Practical and sporty


The horn stops working on occasions.

One of the rear left passenger door hinges is rusting.

Strange buzzing noise coming from the engine bay, most probably from one the belt pulleys.

Dust is leaking into the inside of the transparent headlamp casing.

General Comments:

The car drives well & handles great.. Feels like a light sports car.

The interior is tight for someone tall and the bucket seats are not that comfy. The gear lever area and the central console is cramped.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
