Fast, reliable and tough
I had to adjust the tick-over as the previous owner had neglected to service the engine very often.
Slight wear on the rear seating.
A very swift ride, have only done a few hundred miles so far, but enjoyed the excellent road traction the vehicle has displayed.
The 4X4 feature is useful, given that I live in a rural area. Have found no problem with the transmission in either 4X4 or 2WD modes.
After adjusting the engine's tick-over, she ran like a charm. I would say that the Justy is a smooth, reliable car with plenty of power under the bonnet. It's surprising the velocity you can pick up given that this engine only has 3 cylinders.
Overall I recommend this car to people who live in rural, country areas for it's work-horse charm and excellent maneuverability (just perfect for slim winding lanes.)
Not so hot for motorway use, despite it's powerful nature the car is still preferred for countryside usage, although I'd recommend it over a Fiesta or Clio.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
