2002 Hyundai Atoz Prime 1.1 from Norway
Solid, but beware of resale value
Well built car with few problems. Only thing on this car that is poorly designed is the brakes that last for a year or two. But this car never did any high km figure, so I don't know how it will work beyond 100.000 km.
This is my mother in law's car. She just sold it and bought a new one. Before this one she had a 2000 model. She just loves these funny little cars.
Great city car with light clutch and steering. But don't do long trips in it.
Resale value after 5 years is equal to nothing when trade in, but new price is low so it probably does not matter. These cars must be bargains second hand if you do your own maintenance.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

These strange little cars are very resilient. Driving in one, it may feel like it's falling apart with rattles and shaking. Fit and finish is nonexistent, and after a couple of years they often look like a wreck. But they seem almost impossible to destroy. For some reason they always start. My sister has one that's 10 years old, and I don't think she's been changing the oil for years. It looks like a wreck, but always starts.
