Summary:

If it were well maintained, it would have went like a scalded cat

Faults:

Gearbox needed an overhaul.

Rear brakes needed an overhaul.

The body was very rusty.

The handbrake lever broke one day while I was parking.

Then engine continuously ran out of tune and no amount of servicing would help it.

General Comments:

I drove it when it belonged to my step father, it drove and handled very well.

It went into rapid decline though, from lack of use.

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