Reliable, fun to drive bargain
- Rear window sprayer doesn't work (not really important).
- Cigarette lighter doesn't stay in heat position.
- Part of left front suspension replaced (probably due to lowering springs).
-Right rear axle and wheel bearing replaced after crashing sideways into a curb (my fault).
Though not a very fast car in a straight line, it is nippy and has quite good handling. Made better by installing lowering springs and 15inch alloy wheels.
It's pretty comfortable and shifts really smoothly, easy to drive. Passenger space is good for people up front, but not in the backseat.
It looks nice and sporty, especially in icelle blue with some nice alloys. Most people don't know what car it is.
Cheap and fun to drive first car. But now looking for something faster, maybe a Colt GTi.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
