A very good bargain for the price


The tank was rusty and leaked when filled with fuel.

At times the car will not start unless you press the accelerator while turning the ignition.

The anti-lock braking system switches off and on at will.

General Comments:

The car is fuel efficient, has a good grip on the road and it accelerates pretty fast.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I've had the same problem with mine. However I've found that if you prime the engine (pump the accelerator a few times) before cranking it. Mine will start with minimal cranking.
