Summary:

Go the Pulsar

Faults:

Bought with very minor oil leak...negligible.

Driver's seat backrest is now loose.

Exhaust + muffler are loose, causing rattling sound at certain revs.

General Comments:

A very reliable car, handles well, responsive and efficient.

Even though the car has done nearly half a million miles, the engine is still running well, no smoke or excess oil consumption.

Good for trips around Australia.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
