Very good small car!


The car had a complete electric failure at 12000 mile, repaired at the garage.

Have done driving very much and the car has been very good; no problems.

General Comments:

Very cheap! I cannot afford a foreign made car, and this is just as good!

This car has been perfect for a small family car. It drives comfortably, but is very slow to accelerate. However, it's still good for the motorway.

The engine makes much noise at high speeds, and the car rattles, mostly because of some poor road conditions.

The car handled the heavy rains and floods recently very well.

I'm very happy to see that China can produce such good vehicles. I will always drive JiangNan!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
