A commercial low performance car


The car is not a reliable car at all, anything can go wrong in anytime.

The gear system was faulty from the very first day that I got the car, it kept making strange sounds on first gear, and I heard that many other 128 cars have the same defect.

General Comments:

Merit of this car is that it's maintenance is very cheap specially in my country. You can build the car again with very reasonable money, but, drawback is that it's durability is very very bad.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
