Summary:

Better than its reputation

Faults:

The car has always run hot, especially in traffic.

I have replaced the radiator and fitted a manual switch for the fan; much better now.

Rear muffler rusted out.

General Comments:

Reliable enough for a car of this age.

Very good on gas. Accelerates quite well.

Gearing perhaps a little high, especially second.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
