Matiz - Cooling System Nightmare
Head Gasket at 38,000, 45,000, 60,000, yada, yada, yada. Heater radiator blocked, radiator blocked, all round cooling system problems. Water pump at 88,000. Blew the inlet manifold up, you'll never guess, right, Overheating again. God knows what it would be like to own this car in a warm climate.
This is a fantastic car, except for the cooling system problems, which make the car unreliable and untrustworthy, don't buy one unless you are only traveling within 5 miles of where you live.
What you save on purchase price, the dealer will extract from your wallet with all the service costs surrounding the cooling system problems. Expect service bills up to €1000 euros a time.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
