Pity they do not import this car any longer, its good on fuel, gets one from A to B in comfort, even hired on in UK, love this car
Great small car, had one since 2003 & love it,this is the sort of car that most Australians SHOULD BUY, but don't...better than any Holden!
nothing really of note, does what I ask of a car.

the inductor coil needs a resister...... some are inbuilt and some have it separately outside the unit.

Hi maybe you need to change your spark plugs like platinum or iridium, they are expensive but work very fine, they need too much less current to work and avoid the distribuitor contacts damage...

I bought a Matiz 2003 model, but hear a sound at the front passengers side nearby the wheel. And the steering wheel also is a bit difficult to control?

Steering is difficult, because its steering system is not a hydraulic one, so its a bit confusing when you are steering at a low speed, for example trying to park your car in some way.the front sounds are because of failure in a piece we call it (wheel bag) its cheap and must be changed for both front wheels. such piece fails frequently specially when the steering system is not hydraulic,and streets are somehow not straight or having much holes.
