No frills, no thrills
Nothing serious, engine has always idled roughly, and is prone to stalling when cold, dealer has not been able to resolve this.
Some interior fittings are cheesy and fragile such as the brittle window winders which have been replaced due to snapping off twice.
Whilst the car is totally reliable, and looks nice, there isn't much else going for it.
The handling is shocking, no feedback from the over-assisted steering, choppy ride, and pathetic grip make it a chore to drive especially in wet weather.
The interior materials are cheap, and the seats are uncomfortable.
The performance is pathetic from a 1.6L vehicle, a 1.3L of any variety would probably leave it in its dust. It also has poor fuel economy, and is more expensive than my old 2.0L to run. Makes me think that the engine in this car has never operated as it was intended, maybe I got a lemon? It is very reliable however.
My Laser is a very dull car to own and drive. Yes it's dependable, but I don't expect this car to have the longevity that the Toyota did.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
