A nice car to drive


When I first bought it I had to change the clock in six months time. It was still under guarantee though.

After a month or so I had the brake blocks changed as they were making a terrible noise when I had to brake hard.

After four years and 86750 Km I had the left drive shaft changed and also the weatherstrip) of the rear door (It's a 3-door car). All these cost 730 EURO.

General Comments:

Nice to drive.

Very responsive motor.

Very comfortable driver seat and ergonomic interior.

Very good brakes.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
