Great car if modded


The compressor was screwed when I got it.

Bad dash panels.

Engine fires/chokes especially in the morning; takes quite some time to warm up.

Legroom's very limited, front and back.

General Comments:

It's run almost twice around the globe...

And it's still running.

If maintained well, you'll reach the moon (distance).

Should have gotten a more powerful engine though; 1.8 etc etc.

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

Nearly half a million KM and you score only 5/10? Toyota are the best.

The car has already reached the moon, which is 384000 km away.
