Summary:

To good to be true-a true acceleration devil family-like car

Faults:

Nothing has gone wrong yet, well nothing serious - had to change the exhaust, the catalytic converter also needs to be changed, but it'll wait...

General Comments:

Because of the turbo it's more a rocket than a car (though only 120 hp)

The suspension is too soft, it bends, or rather waves, too much while overtaking in high speed an round the corners taken in high speed

Summary:

When kept in good condition, a nice and strong car to drive

Faults:

When traveling large distances, or towing a caravan, the carburetor doesn't take in enough fuel and the engine will stop running.

Choke lever broke off.

Clock has stopped running.

Central door locking only works on three doors.

General Comments:

I like the car's smoothness, when on the highway. The suspension almost feels American.

I hate the fact that I can't tow a caravan for more the 10 kilometers before the car brakes down.

It's shape isn't the best in the world, but it does look kind off stylish when in white, like mine. The chrome grille adds to this.

Fuel consumption is a bit high, could be better.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
