Reliable, low running costs - best first car I could ever wish for :)
Exhaust pipe felt down because it rusted through.
Catalytic converter did not work well enough after those years and kilometers.
Car body is very vulnerable to rust.
But generally nothing serious.
Change oil regularly, make sure it has enough cooling fluid and it will work for you reliably for a long time and distances.
Very good fuel consumption - I never got it over 7 l/100km, normally 5,5 l/100km and in extra economy driving for long distance I have had 4,7 l/100km.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
