Driving it

3 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Well don't expect performance, its a small engine for a large car so you need to change down when you go uphill, you don't need worry about speeding cause its not fast. If its got the skinny 13" wheels and tyres the handling is poor and i would recommend going to the scrapyard and getting some bigger ones.

What's it like to park?
Not bad to say theres no power stearing.

Living with it

Have you had any problems with the car?
Not really that much to go wrong, the temperature gauge doesnt work but it doesnt need toping up with water and no overheating, probably just a fuse. The clutch is a bit tired but still going with no problems

What's most practical about your car?
Has a good ash tray! and one in the back.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Gadget??? Theres a Radio, thats about it!
