Summary:

Fun and easy to drive

Faults:

Recalled for a fault that would cause the drivers seat to shoot forward in the event of an accident.

Problems starting when cold.

New clutch required after only 60000 Km, even though I do mostly motorway driving.

Nasty rattle from the alternator.

General Comments:

This car is like the Tardis... It has plenty of space inside considering how small it looks from the outside.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I also use a Tigra 2000, it's my 1st car, but in many cases it's user friendly... specially in over taking and on narrow roads... but it's good for 2 people.
