Chevrolet Captiva in Albania

The site itself is convenient, but does not contain complete information about the condition of the rented car. It starts for 10-15 minutes (either the battery is old or the spark plugs need to be cleaned). Hollowed steering rack. I have no complaints about the site. I was very disappointed with the condition of the car, and had trouble.
