Not a diesel but with those dieseltax euros you buy a lot of gas
Once almost bought one of those but decided to get a suzuki alto instead.

Is the twingo 4 or 5 speed?

all twingos are 6-speed, five forward one backward

some surface rust is on and the handbrake doesnt disengage properly, had to beat the rear drums like a hippie on salvia

but first i'll change all things liquid, oils, plugs, filters.

and get new summer tires

pff this car costs me only about 32€ a month in taxes and insurance
