As cheap as it gets
Gear linkage went- couldn't reverse. Admittedly due to me taking it off road and slamming it off the ground.
Exhaust needed 2 sections replaced. User abuse. See above!
Head gasket was on the way out when I got rid of it. Leaking water BADLY. Was topping up every 70 miles.
Owned 3 months. Did huge mileage with no servicing in this old diesel. Amazing economy - i.e. about 70MPG.
Simple - power steering wasn't present so it was a monster to park and heavy to drive, but I knew that before I bought it.
Slow. Sluggish! But hey 70MPG!
Bought for £400. Sold £350 with gubbed head gasket.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
