Indestructible little tank
Starter motor wore out slowly between 190,000km and 210,000km.
Never had any fluids changed or topped up, except oil, which has been filled twice since new.
Been serviced twice by a mobile mechanic.
Starter motor worked fine first time, but needed to cool off before it could restart later, so we got a new one.
Absolutely no other mechanical problems.
This car has been caned, if it had a tacho, it'd be stuck in the top half of revs permanently.
The engine is dead gutless at low rev's, but goes alright at high rev's and is very willing to go hard.
Suspension is terrible; it's horribly soft and the car wallows around worse than anything I've ever driven. It ruins the handling too.
Cabin plastics and seats are disgustingly cheap, as bad as korean alternatives for Japanese price.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
