Beautiful little (slow) car


Gear stick snapped, fixed with industrial strength glue though.

Numerous oil leaks.

And I had some rattly bearing problems about 2 weeks after I bought it.

General Comments:


Easy to park.

Very economical.

Look amazing though.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
