ABSOLUTELY NOTHING except for maintaining services.

Nothing went wrong for the past 4 years that I owned it.


General Comments:

Rides like a sporty little car (except for the handling).

Gear is nothing else but amazing, and the engine doesn't feel like 1.2L.

I wish they were still selling it ,and while it rides as it is, I'm sticking with it till dies (already 10 years old now..)

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Glad to hear it matey, as I have just bought one. Went for test drive and was instantly sold on it. We should ignore all this nonsense about problems, I have had lots of problems with other makes of cars, so what's the difference. Happy motoring.

I would by it again


Sometimes when stopping the back windshield wiper, it may keep working for a few minutes more.

General Comments:

I am its 3rd owner. First was a car rental.

I have it for about 18 months and so far it had no problems. It drives well and has low fuel consumption (though the consumption showed by the car computer is about one km/liter optimistic).
