Engine rebuild at 143000 km due to neglect, not the car's fault.

Seats are due for re-upholstery.

Auto transmission ECU fused.

General Comments:

This is a great little car.

Economical; I am getting approx 22.5 km per litre around town.

Reliable; apart from the ECU fusing, not a thing has gone wrong.

Comfortable, I am 6'1" and have plenty of room.

Easy to drive and park, and just a great all round car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
