Reliable old shed
Rear exhaust needed replacing.
Sunroof stuck open.
Clock didn't work.
Headlining around sunroof hanging down.
Comfy old workhorse!
Bought for £500 and reliable as hell!!
Just needed to stick a new battery in it, and it always started first time, every time.
I won't bother talking about the handling as it rolled like hell through corners, and I nearly span it once on a wet roundabout, assuming all-wheel drive gave me Audi Quattro levels of grip, which it didn't!! To be honest, I think the fact it had winter tyres on the front and normal ones on the back didn't help.
Engine was a bit hesitant when cold, but once warmed up was fine. Again, no point talking performance because it didn't have a lot! Quite a bit of wind noise, but very, very comfy; it ironed out bumps in the road like they weren't there at all!
I never dared to try opening the sunroof again after it stuck open once and I had to coax it shut. From reading online, sunroof problems are common on these.
Anyway, it did exactly what I wanted it to do, which was to take a Great Dane to the fields and back so my main car didn't get dirty!!
I've now sold it to a guy for more than I bought it for, as these things seem really popular on the secondhand market!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
