Summary:

A great little run-about for city or highway

Faults:

Clutch wore out at about 200K km.

Seat covering is worn out.

Needs to warm up for about 2 minutes when starting from cold... I guess I should get a tune up!

General Comments:

Man, I trust this car. The clutch started wearing out when I got it, and that was about 20K km ago! I finally replaced the clutch this month and it is peppier than ever.

It is cheap to run, uses very little oil, and just keeps ticking.

The stereo (factory original) sucks canal water!

It just feels like a trust-able car to me, and hasn't let me down!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
