Summary:

Unreliable small car

Faults:

Power steering acting up.

Engine oil kept disappearing.

Lambda sensor failed.

General Comments:

I had the car less than a year. I liked the styling, the sporty seats and the way it handled. It was stable on the motorway for such a small car. The suspension was quite hard, but it was the Sport model so that's to be expected.

Unfortunately, the problems I had took the shine out of the ownership. The electric power steering was very strange. It seemed to have a mind of its own. The alternator started to whine, then died. Sometimes the car started kangarooing like crazy for no apparent reason. It also used a lot of oil, about 1 litre/1000km's. Rather noisy, too, especially on the motorway.

A nice enough car, but let down by poor electrics and many mechanical niggles.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

General Comments:

Overall a great car!

Cheap to buy, and cheap to own.

Small, quite fast, perfect for city driving. Seems solid built. I think it will last for many years to come.
