Summary:

Super Cheap Auto!

Faults:

Nothing. I haven't had any problems with the car. My Grandfather owned the car before me and he was a Mechanical Engineer, therefore the car is close to showroom condition.

General Comments:

The motor takes too long to warm-up in the morning, particularly colder mornings.

The engines a bit sluggish and the automatic gearbox is extremely poorly geared. A 5sp manual would be so much better!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Summary:

Quick little beast

Faults:

It tends to over heat when racing down the 1/4 mile.

General Comments:

This car has a lot speed as I've got it up to 165km in the forth gear. Also I had a full car load of people.

I'm droping a 2 litre vtec into it and then may twin turbo it. I'm going to do it up to the Max. Paint, body kit, Interior and the rest.

A cheap way to make this car go faster is to get a K&N air filter it helps improve speed by a lot.

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