The time does not run for this car


Basically I had to replaced one drive shaft, the breather valve for the engine, and the front discs in 30000 kms of driving.

After this, the normal servicing parts etc...

General Comments:

The car is comfortable for driving, and with 5 speed is quite economical.

Has good visibility all around.. maybe the rear right window with the spare wheel can be a issue..

Good headlamps and very reliable; always starts.

Bad points are the heating system, specially for Sweden needs the fan all the time, and a bigger heater matrix will be excellent.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
