Summary:

Best Bargain Ever!

Faults:

Welding.

General Comments:

I actually purchased this car for £60! It was red with only a couple of rust spots and I couldn't believe my luck.

Basically, I cannot fault it. The drive was comfortable, it was very nippy and fast for a car of this size.

I really thought I'd only have it for the 5 months left on the MOT, but amazingly it went through an MOT with only a little welding underneath required and a new tyre. Total cost £110!

I think seventeen months motoring for £170 is a bargain.

Petrol consumption was a little high at only 18mpg around town and 25 on a run, but for a car this age and size not ridiculous.

It was a god given gift!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
