General Comments:

Bought this car after an accident I had with the Golf. I decided to go for a safer car.

All problems have been sorted out using lots of DIY, as parts are too expensive. I have GPL gas mounted so consumption is very low, yet that also means that the boot has a 62 liter gas chamber.

Car drives great and acceleration is very good. Fitted new 185/60 tires so handling is also very good.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
