1998 Holden Barina City from Australia and New Zealand
Reliable, but a small cabin and a lack of acceleration.
Passenger side door locking mechanism had to be replaced, at a cost of $600.
Plastic fittings inside car, keep falling off.
Air-conditioning refuses to work.
Windows won't wind all the way down.
Back seat continually gets stuck when adjusting, and mechanisms have to be replaced, which is expensive.
A very reliable little car mechanically wise. It has never broken down.
Fixtures inside the car tend to fall off, but this doesn't effect the actual reliability of the driving.
Tends to be very sluggish driving. A real lack of power.
Very good turning circle. Can fit easily into small parking spaces.
The small foot pedals and cabin size suits a small person. Probably really meant for girls. My male big feet tend to catch on two pedals at once. Not much elbow space at all.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
