Summary:

A high performance bargain

Faults:

To soon to tell, but service history of car indicates no problems up till now.

Recommended change of transmission belt at 80.000-90.000km rather than the 120.000km factory standard. This is a relatively expensive operation (400euro+)

General Comments:

With near-on 162kW this car is powerful.

The interior is well-equipped, even luxurious and the external appearance is very stylish. I was looking for small car and ended up buying this as the price was so low. A real competitor to BMW/Mercedes at a fraction of the cost on the second-hand market. Used prices vary greatly so look around.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
