Cheapest on the market


Because of low quality fuel in Ukraine, I got the problems with the injection. I had to clean it, it cost me about 25 bucks.

Bad factory assembly caused untightened steering system, repaired for $30.

General Comments:

The cheapest new car you could find on the market, about $4 000 for the new one.

A kind of reliable, but extremely noisy, even after 2500 rpm.

It is 5-door hatch, but so small that it looks like a toy car.

Frankly it was my first car and I loved it :)

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
