Great looking car, fantastic drive, holds the road well.
Hard car to drive, continually dropping down the gears, there's very little torque.
Cheap to buy, expensive to run. Averaging about 19 mpg.
Needs a bit more looking after being a rotary engine, little bit of 2 stroke oil in with the petrol. Check the engine oil regularly.
I would still recommend the car.
Bought it as a "toy" and thoroughly enjoy it. It's thirty and expensive and not always practical and no use whatsoever if you do a high mileage - but it goes like excrement of a heated shovelling instrument and I have never regretted purchasing it for a nonosecond.
Not cheap to run, as it is thirsty for oil, petrol and tires, with a rear set only lasting around 10,000 miles, but great fun to drive. Will seat 4 tall people surprisingly comfortably, and bring a smile to your face too.
despite taking it to Europe and having a blast and loving the performance- the consumption of oil and the poor fuel consumption as well as tough suspension make this creature of beauty less than a routine practical drive
