Summary:

Worsted car I have ever driven

Faults:

The head gasket blew two weeks after buying it and it had a crack in the water container.

General Comments:

The car was very ugly although easy to drive. I hated driving it the top speed was 130 km, but above 100 km it was very noisy and the window use to start coming down. The car was so low powered it was very hard overtaking other cars. There was no rear seat belts the interior was past its best. I would not recommend this car to anyone. It is now on its way to the scrap yard and I lost 750 euros I did not get it fixed because it would have cost over 1000 euro to fix.

You bought a 19 year old budget car only originally designed to last 5-7 years; how can you complain?!

Why did you buy it?

You can really expect a 20 year old car built by Maruti Udyog to be this wonderful, fully reliable automobile.

General Comments:

Absolutely Brilliant Car.

She accelerates like a dog on a rug, handles like a knock -kneed camel on a wet clay bank and can be outrun by the family pet.

LOVELY. I am truly in love with this car. It is so much fun to drive. I really want to say something bad about this car to make you all laugh, but I can't. She's so sweet!
