Alternator just expired, but was refurbished quite cheaply. It was the 16 year old original though!

General Comments:

This is a mad impulse buy of a car that is 2 meters tall and magenta pink in colour, so it gets noticed.

Surprised how good it is for such an old bus. High spec, comfy, spacious and good performance for its size.

4x4 invaluable this winter on the frozen snowy lanes and ideal for summer picnics and camping.

Would like to get a newer one at some point when I can afford it.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
