This car has all the classic weak spots of this model: the heater temperature selector is broken, the usual small rust spots at the bottom of the windscreen are starting, the front seats are shot and the back seats are starting to break.

Other than that, it is just the usual maintenance.

General Comments:

This car is seriously slow... etc.

Brilliant cars these, they last forever.

They are roomy for their size, the seats fold flat, it is cheap to run, easy to fix, easy to find parts.

It's all good!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
