Door and window seals are poor, car leaks in a few places.

Rust in the boot, but it's an old car.

General Comments:

This thing is awesome, I am only a learner, but I have driven a lot of cars and have been racing since I was 13.

This car is quick, but mine is modified, it is not the stock engine, but I have heard that the engine is quite quick.

Mine is also a rx4 hybrid, and is looks very nice, the cockpit is large yes uncomroftable, but you pay for good looks ;-)
