Summary:

Charming but unreliable

Faults:

Sometimes the motor stops running for about half a second, then it starts again. Sometimes it is impossible to start the motor.

The car has been in three different garages this summer. No one can find out what is wrong. The gasoline filter has been cleaned, and the gasoline pump has been changed.

General Comments:

When the motor is not malfunctioning, the car is just wonderful.

Good value for money.

I have the same car, but only a 90pk HDi, it's OK, and drives very good, but what I want is a spoiler that flashes... so that's what I have to change.

I have a 2.0 Litre HDI Executive estate which is possibly the best all round car I have ever had. V registration (2000)
