Summary:

A family car

Faults:

Cam belt broke at 61,000 miles.

Valves bent at same mileage.

General Comments:

This car is not the quickest of cars and acceleration is general poor.

Generally the interior is pretty dull, but comfortable and practical.

Cheap car to buy and not too bad to run, but I wouldn't buy one again.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

This guy is used to maybe more sophisticated cars, but you can't argue with the cost/reliability/general run of the brava. If he is after performance he should not have bought a brava, but maybe a 1.6 punto that would give him the thrust he was after?
