Totally delighted. Amazed at the excellent build quality in this price range. Many extras like park assist, air conditioner, power steering ABS, EBC, central locking, electric windows and even electric mirrors. There is a standard good quality radio with 6 speakers, CD and a USB port. These all work very well. Driving experience is a pleasure, she is quiet but give a cute growl when pushed. Road-holding is very good (pushed her quite hard around the bends near Tzaneen). Has not used any coolant or oil yet. First service was only R750.00.


Positive:

Lots of go at high revs and engine revs very freely. Lovely gearbox (1st to 2nd a bit slow like the old Alfa's). Smooth and comfortable. Excellent headlamps.

Negative:

Not too much torque at low revs. Must be driven like a motorcycle. Was very tight up until 1500Km and needed careful running-in.

Advice for a Buyer:

Get one quickly while it is still the best kept secret in South Africa. Fantastic value for money.

Was this feedback useful?
