Summary:

A reliable and easy to drive car

Faults:

My trunk's lock broke down after 5000 km.

One fuel injector, sometimes is interrupting during second and third gear changing.

Strange noises in the door panel (but that's because of the bad road here in Romania)

Problems with the air conditioning.

General Comments:

This car is a reliable car although is a pretty old model.

It's comfortable and nice to drive on long distances, but don't exceed 140 km per hour, it becomes unsafe and loses stability when brake is pushed.

It's a beautiful car and I love it cause it offers a lot of things that my old Dacia Nova couldn't even dream.

I am in the process of acquiring a Cielo myself. Being my first car I think there is no better car on the Australian market that represents value for money!
