Duration of car driven:
For the price, it is value for money. It would have been nicer, if the quality of carpet, plastic is a little more upmarket.
Easy to drive. Smooth engine, very little noise when crusing on expressway. Spacious 4 seaters (5 seaters only if center passenger is a kid less than 10years). Fairly big size boot for a 1600 cc car.
Poor fuel consumption. Never get more than 500km per tankful(50 litre). Poor quality control, scaft plates fall off one by one after only 3 months. Noise from rear suspension, whenever a person boarded. Soft suspension meant for crusing driving.
