General Comments:

Despite the above problems it really wasn't a bad car. It has a Fiat engine. It ran on unleaded, was quite fast considering (would cruise at 75). I used it every day and did over 30,000 miles in it. In the end it had a certain charm and was not too reliable, but it proved cheap to fix and parts are available.

If you can find a rust free one or a rare convertible, then it's not a bad car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
