The car was purchased 5 years of age with a mileage of 70 thousand km, 1.8 turbo stick, all stock, good condition. In the car I was noticed was the excessive stiffness. The engine is a bomb, a decent guise for this car in this class probably the best. After several years of operation and reading the forums I realized what to do. Many people write about its stiffness and the buildup, and peck under braking and acceleration, it’s all there, all true, but this is only Octavian who went to Ukraine and for Ukraine with a package of bad road later when I eliminated them, I know completely different car and didn’t understand how I 3 years went really on the bucket) the one who came up with the bad roads package really needs to be executed) this monster made of machine bucket which was supposed to go somewhere on the road in the village not getting out of the mud then this package may be useful in other cases, it is nonsense! Package bad roads provides part-time under the a-pillars 2cm, one to two turns and hard rear springs, and heavy and hard rubber side bump! Here are 3 of these factors and turn a good car into a bucket of bolts! Hence the stiffness, all the rolls, sweeps, pecks, poor handling, braking and all the other side effects! Hands to tear these masters, made from the seam of the bucket! Once removed the damn half-time, changing the springs for European cars, soft and short, put soft normal rubber, you will immediately know what got into another car! He turns, slowed down, all the irregularities of the road are processed was provided by the manufacturer! You get a normal car) and about everything else I do not want to write, all good, all safe. The brand! No Japanese, Korean, French out there and some not worth it)

Car pros:Quality, price and auto parts and reliability!

Cons of the car:Remove the package bad roads, invented for aliens)

Advice to buyer: Car is worth a take!
