A very well built vehicle, and generally trouble free
Valve stem seals replaced at 245000; cost $300.
Headlining showing signs of coming away.
Serviced door locking actuators as small rubber stops fitted internally had perished; replaced with blobs of silicone.
Quite economical, comfortable to drive.
Does not use any oil. Service it every 12 months with new spark plugs, oil change, radiator flush, and oil filter. Still has its original brake pads and light bulbs. Most trouble free vehicle that I have owned in my 60 years of driving.
Have just had the alternator and starter serviced as a precaution. Should a shock absorber need replacing, I am told that these are no longer available.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
