Nice Nippy Motor


Had the car 3 months and have done 3000 miles.

My head gasket blew at 52000 miles.

Occasional high revs when starting the car.

Annoying squeak coming from the passenger side rear wheel area.

General Comments:

The car is very quick from a stationary position and can certainly shift.

I would certainly buy another.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
