Knocking sound from the engine bay.

General Comments:

I love the way the car handles and steers, and it's very stable for a small car. At first I was disappointed with the way it handled bumps until I took it for a drive on country roads, the faster you go the better the suspension works.

The engine is nice and torquey, but the gearbox is slow.

What I like most is the way it goes around corners, the grip is amazing.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
