Cheap and reliable get-you-everywhere
Bought the car with a blown starter engine and starter relays. After replacing these, the car has been running smooth.
Only problem is the colling water. The orange indicator light flips on when the reservoir is empty, but filling the reservoir only helps for about 2.000 km. After that the reservoir is empty again. However, the engine never overheats and does not seem to loose any water... strange problem not solved yet.
Driver seat is starting to wear.
On long drives the seats are real back-breakers. Especially for longer people.
Susceptible to rust.
Locks on the doors don't work properly with the key, slide-door cannot be opened with the key anymore. Perhaps the locks are dirty or the key is too worn...
Extremely reliable vehicle. Old car that has been heavy-used for nearly 200.000 km still runs smooth. Uses no oil, but a little water. Runs cheaply on LPG and uses about 1 liter for 7 km. Drives like a car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
