Overall, a perfectly acceptable econobox, reminds me a great deal of the original Beetle
Routine maintenance, timing belt changed, drivers door out of alignment, driver door window difficult to close.
Remarkable gas mileage, 35-40 mph mixed city/highway. Quite a high level of quality fit and finish for such a cheap car. Manual transmission is very busy, requires frequent shifting in city and stop'n'go traffic, and a 5th speed would have been a welcome addition. Acceleration is barely adequate. Handling is okay, though lack of power steering shows at low speeds.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
