Awesome Car — it's performances are really great. it can be personalised very well. it breaks up really rarely, and has only one error: engine belt often breaks up. it's gas mileage is around 4-7 litres, depending on engine. it's really easy to drive and most people who drives it once, drives it forever

Pros: easy to drive, cheap, awesome car

Cons: engine belt often breaks up

Good Car — It's a good car and it's cheap to maintain! It has a fast acceleration, but no top end. Overall, I really like this car and my next car will be an upgrade to the VW Citi Golf. I might just get myself the VW Citi Golf R-Line. Now there is power for you.

Pros: The Acceleration

Cons: No Muscle
