Summary:

Ideal first car for young couple

General Comments:

It is not very fast, but it was not supposed to. It's the best solution for crowded towns - short, easy to park. It consumes about 5,5-6,0 l/100 km, which is not bad, but could be better. Easy to open without your keys (some %$%%^$ have stolen my radio and everything that was in the trunk). Ideal first car. In Poland every mechanic can fix it without any problems.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I had one years back in Poland, and all what I could say it was a total piece of junk. Point. No power, 23 HP only, for a car? Bad fuel economy, totally unsafe in an accident, no forced heating or ventilation (the car have to be moving to have air flow), front steering needed a grease job every 1500 km!!!

It was the biggest communist joke, they say - you want a car, we give you one. And laugh after. And yes I have a sentiment for the car only because it was the first one I had.
