I too have a 1996 model and runs very good; only problem is a bulb behind the heater control has gone. Does anybody know how to replace it?

Summary:

Everyday nice drive, useful little car

Faults:

Lots of bulbs changed, passenger window and entire body is very noisy.

Steering too hard.

Not many things considering the usage for almost 5 years. Common replacements (brake pads, spark plugs, filters, etc.) only changed.

General Comments:

Excellent car indeed, except for the lack of power (44hp), too slow, got to drive at high (>3500) rpm to get the best out of it.
