i think most cars have some common faults one way or another, checking everything works before you buy , test driving it , who you buy it from , trade or private , buying from the trade offers you more protection. heres some web sites for you to look at , hope they might be of help , some have customer reveiws on the stree ka.

One major fault is a small petrol tank and they are damn thirsty on petrol.

I think they are great wee cars,very stylish & rarely have we seen another with a hardtop!



Its a quick wee roadster & nippy for driving around town,for the money I think its good value!


Even better when the sun comes out its open top driving........ :P


We have the heated leather seats which looks cool & a good sound system.


If you want a fun car it ticks all the right boxes.

That's good. I'm planning get one for my son before the school starts. So how was the feeling driving it? Any problem that you encountered so far?
