A brilliant little runabout. Still giving excellent service. The powerful 1.6 liter 16 valve engine with its original exhaust system does not use a drop of oil. Even with the costs of all services and with normal wear and tear replacement items including Tyres, Clutch plates, Batteries (2) Brake shoes, and discs etc, the running costs have been minimal.
Nippy, reliable and ecomomical vehicle. Aircon, power steering and 2 x electric windows have functioned faultlessly. For its size the vehicle has a surprisingly usable boot size and the seats fold down to form mini station wagon when required.
