Shoe-box racer


The outer CV-joint rubber boots were worn when I got the car.

The driver's door hinges were worn out.

General Comments:

Although all my friends laugh at me, I love those shoe-boxes.

The design is very simple, but gives a good sight in any direction.

It handles like a racer, you can throw it around corners nearly like a bike.

Comfort is better than in other cars in that price range, less equipment means less weight and less (electrical) faults.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
