A high maintenance, low performance, high economical, cheap car
Had to get my torque converter rebuilt.
Worn ball bearings in engine.
Leaking a lot of engine oil.
Seat belts wear a lot.
Seals on the door and around windscreen are starting to decay.
Bonnet will no longer open.
Fan is starting to run off centre and cause a lot of noise.
The engine ratios are all out of whack.
I suggest you get a manual, there is too much trouble with the automatic. For example, the torque converters ALWAYS breakdown, and so you have to get it rebuilt.
It's not a fast car, and has no grunt whatsoever. Perfect for an old lady, or a parent buying a car for their kid who they don't want killing themselves.
Doesn't handle very well. The suspension doesn't fully work with the front wheel drive, and it will lose control around a fast corner.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
