Summary:

Great overall sports car

Faults:

Only problem was the airbag warning light, which would turn on without a reason. Cause was a faulty connector, changed by the dealer at no cost.

General Comments:

Great car!!! Quite fast and has fantastic handling. Was a great bargain, since I bought used. So far it has been very reliable, plan to keep it 2 or 3 years.

Since it looks like a normal Xsara it doesn't stand out which is great with the Police... gives your average Golf driver a scare at the stop lights.
