Cheap but awful
Would die when started cold (3500km) and had to be revved hard for a minute just to stop itself from choking. Fixed under warranty - a faulty choke.
Glove box kept opening by itself.
Rattles and squeaks galore.
Transmission oil leak at 7500km.
Window handle stayed in my hand (12000km).
Sucks fuel dreadfully - 9L/100km on the open road! That equals a V6 car!
I only bought it because my poor Bravo got wrecked and I needed something cheap quick. Bad mistake and I warn everybody not to buy these bombs.
The deals they offer are tempting, but it is badly made, not particularly comfortable and performs like a tank - the engine delivers more like a 1.1 than a 1.5. And that horrible fuel consumption.
On the good side.. the wheels didn't fall off.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
