Summary:

Wonderful!

Faults:

No mechanical failures! But the inside of the car rattles and squeaks terribly! The fittings are not the best and the cabin, although comfortable, is cheap.

General Comments:

I love this car! Although the inside is cheap, so was the car, very cheap. I do like the wood look of the dash though!

The car is very slow as it is heavy and the engine weak, but that's OK, it can still keep up with the traffic and manage 90 on the open paved roads. Silly choice of name I think!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

The Chinese do have a flair for naming things! I don't know if it's part of the traditional character, or simply an attempt following the debacle of the Cultural Revolution for the Communist Party to try to maintain a positive attitude. It would be fun to have a Chevy "Happy Feelings Pleasant Day" pickup.
