This car is an excellent everyday car with good fuel economy.
Owned this car since new, the overall wear and tear and deterioration of the car is very even and not very noticeable until 200,000 km. Idiling is smooth and vibration free even to this date. Squeaks & rattles is starting to show. Still on its original set of brakes.
The car is consuming some oil and leaking some at the shaft seal. Oil consumption is about 1 litre every 3000 km. The exhaust is starting to rattle. Otherwise, it starts and runs everyday even at -30C Canadian winter.
However, in Winter, this car has difficulties staying warm. The temperature gauge fell to COLD in -30C weather. Ride is acceptable for a small car, but with considerable road noise. Engine is under-power, but adequate for daily commute.
