Good semi-sports car
Rear brake pumps replaced at 82400 km.
Engine oil vapour tube replaced at the same time.
Transmission blew at 82500 km.
A great little hatchback, although too much voracious on petrol for a 1.3 liter.
Legally speaking, this car comes with 145 or 155 size tyres wich I do not recommend. Use 165 or 175 size tyres.
Handling on sharp bends is tricky. Tends to overturn.
I don't know how it originally handled for I bought the car with gas suspension.
Beautiful steering wheel and incredibly comfortable Recaro seats.
As with any dealer repair services here in Portugal, it's a complete rip-off. You can get the same job done elsewhere for about half the cost.
It's a very fun car to drive. You get more out of the 1.3 engine at about 3500 rpm.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
