Cheap, reliable, comfy, handy
Only three things went wrong, the ignition module died on me after 180.000kms, the road service (I am a member of) built in another costs £30,and the car was running again (all together from breaking down till fixing took 3 hours!).
Around the same mileage the fan died because the resistor was burnt, this after all was due to a fan whose bearing was on it's way out, so new fan and another resistor, problem fixed, total cost £30 (2 resistors and a used fan).
And the last thing is I had to replace the driver seat after 184.000km, cost £12 (SH).
As well as SH as new parts still available.
Cheap, comfortable and practical car (3 door hatch).
I got a 1.4 petrol so on the motorway it isn't a performer, but absolutely doable.
The car corners fantastic (steering rear axle) and in the city the performance is pretty OK.
No rust at all!
I drove about 45.000km with a total maintenance of around £500.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
