An overlooked bargain
Small oil leak on distributor seal- a cheap fix.
At 90000 km the right side drive shaft boot failed, requiring replacement of the shaft.
Plastic hinge on center console lid failed.
Trims on door pillars coming away at top (exterior) - fixed once, but now needs doing again.
One blown door speaker- replaced with better pair.
After my old Alfa fell apart at the same time I took on my mortgage, I wanted an economical Japanese car with some extras. Mine is white with alloys, tints alarm etc. Have since added extra bits such as performance air filter. Car is uncovered when outside, yet still looks new after a wash and polish. Has been utterly reliable and is able to beat many more fancied cars on the road. Beats the Korean cars on every count.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
