Value for money and it's fast


Nothing major just the high tension wire & fuel pumped replaced, also the brake pads and the air cleaner, & belts for the usual wear & tear. By the way, the glass window on the driver's side was not working smoothly and I had to change the mechanism to a new one. That's it.

General Comments:

I drive this car for around 9 years now and it has not given me any headache. This car accelerates well. It's a practical car to have, and it's fuel efficient as well for a 1.5 engine.

When I vacationed abroad for 3 months, I just had my sister start the car regularly and when I came back I just had my car tuned up. The engine went back to its usual smooth sound and it run normally.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
