Summary:

Looks like a car your Grandpa would drive, But with the performance any

Faults:

Sunroof operation is noisy, And when opened and then closed it doesn't seem to return to it's proper closed position.

Passenger side Electric window is sluggish in operation.

Brake pedal has too much slack before the brakes respond.

General Comments:

Looks dull from the outside, But looks can be deceiving, A real wolf in sheep's clothing.

Hard to believe that a car this old, Has so many refinements that are normally found on more modern luxurious cars, i.e. Electric windows, mirrors & sunroof, Power steering, Air conditioning, Central locking, ABS, Height adjustable steering wheel & Seat belts.

The car also has Good bright headlights, which cast a good degree of light onto the left side of the road which aids driving down unlit roads which have no verge whilst facing oncoming traffic.

The rear seats are comfy, If only a little too narrow.

It has all-round excellent performance.

Good acceleration for safe overtaking.

Steering is light and very responsive.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Summary:

A very reliable, sporty car

Faults:

Battery defective when I bought the car.

Generator broken at 150000 kilometers.

General Comments:

I bought this car very cheap. I didn't have very much money at that time, so I looked for a bargain.

The Concerto has a very unpopular design and the one I own is white,so the price was very low.

I was totally astonished by the way the car drove when I had a test-drive. It drove like a new car!!

It's really the most reliable car I ever owned, it has never let me down.

The performance is very high too. The motor easily runs up to 6500 to 7000 rpm.

However the power windows are heavily worn and almost don't go up and down any more. But hey, what do you expect after 13 years of service...
