Reliable little goer
Seats have never been comfy (they are old).
Air con drinks the fuel so fast you can see the gauge dropping (nice and cold though).
Speedometer works when it feels like it (it used to refuse to work on warm or hot days; now it has changed and loves to work on warm and hot days; hopefully when winter comes, it still works).
New radiator was required at about 215000km, as the rubber tubes had disintegrated (most likely because it has never been kept in a garage).
Paint work is patchy (but it's white, so no one can really tell).
This car has more guts than a lot of other cars I've driven. It's fast and responds quickly to acceleration and braking. The gear box is great at getting the right power to the wheels.
The lack of comfort is made up for by this car being a real character, and simply enjoyable to drive.
Zooms along both city streets and freeways with comfort, and doesn't chug-a-long in the slow lane up hills.
If it wasn't for the terrible safety features in the car, i.e. none. I'd want to drive it forever, and I'm sure it'll out live me.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
