General Comments:

Great car will go forever.

The horizontally apposed 4-cylinder engine sounds like a beast. Especially when you got a few holes in the muffler.

The seats can be a little uncomfortable on longer journeys then have little lower back support.

Very hard to find parts for them.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
