Faults:

Corrosion in distributer leads.

General Comments:

This car is great for driving on the beach. Due to it's light weight it can easily make it through the soft sand where some of the larger vehicles slow right down. However this is a disadvantage for highway driving as it can get blown around a bit. Also the speed isn't to flash, approx 80km/h comfortably with the 4 speed gear box isn't all that great for on the open road.

They are a fun little machine and would recommend it to anyone for a first car, unless it is to be used for distance travel as they can get uncomfortable after a while.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
