Still going, best first car you will come across
Whats wrong wrong with the car? Nothing y the end of this weekend. The car has a rusty rear left door and a little around the boot and rear fenders, but its due for the final paint touch up if the weather holds up.
The seats are a bit hard, but they soften up with some seat covers.
Steering is VERY heavy, but I can't say I've driven many other cars without power steering.
It has some guts, but I seem to be flooring it a lot to keep up with the traffic resulting in large fuel consumption.
The sun visor has been disposed of and replaced.
The carpet has ripped and coming out the sides of the floor and front door meeting points.
Sits very high from the ground, not good for those quick cornering situations.
The paint work, even when unwashed, is still glossy with relatively solid sides and bumpers.
The interior is perfect not a crack in the dash or split in the seats.
Nice little idea of the radio molded into the dash though to keep up with todays trend a CD player was added and new rear speakers (front ones were removed after the blew).
In 19 years this little beast is still running well with no modifications and the 1.3l gives a bit of grunt considering the cars weight to engine size ratio.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
