Summary:

I hate it

Faults:

Many carburetor problems.

Engine head is very sensitive to heat. It melted twice.

After all the abuse the engine has had, its block finally blew, and I sold it to a mechanic for very cheap.

There were also many problems that I cant remember; it's unreliable.

General Comments:

The car interior was in good shape, and well kept.

The car is very slow, not just because it's a 1.6, but it's also very heavy.

The fuel consumption is high, although it's only a 1.6.

The only good thing I can say, is that it is simple to fix, and it has a strong body.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

"Engine head is very sensitive to heat. It melted twice" - this suggests that you have not taken proper care of the car.
