A rough and unrefined, but economical and thrashable first car. It's cheap to run and cheap to buy.
Mine was an already very thrashed example but continued to run and never left me stranded except at home where it had trouble starting on cold mornings. These were its good points but
I hated the car and thought the bad outweighed the good.
The terribly designed, simple live rear axle setup gives a jerky, bouncy and uncomfortable ride.
The 1.6 with only 50 kilowatts and a 19.5kg/kw power to weight ratio leaves a lot to be desired. I always felt in the way of the other cars behind me when the traffic lights went green despite using all five forward gears.
Other inadequacies of the car included the inadequate heater, lack of sound insulation, pedals too close to the steering wheel, early brake fade, I could go on but what do you expect for a 2 grand car?
