Nice little car, I'd buy it again!
When I bought it nothing was wrong, except at 5000km the rear wiper fell loose for which I took it to the dealer and found a screw was loose. After tightening it, I never had a problem again.
At 60000km I had a problem with the radio, the CD player tends to get stuck and does not respond to any commands, I would press "eject" and nothing would happen. Sometimes it would display "track 85" on a CD with 12 tracks. I took it to the dealer for repairs (which I paid for) but it came back with the same problem. It still does it sometimes, but I don't think I want to wait another 3 weeks it takes for it to be repaired.
Since this is my first car and I'm a lady, my priority has been reliability, and so far I have never been disappointed. I have never had an instance when I had to call a breakdown or when it would not start in the morning.
It has good fuel consumption, and servicing is not too expensive.
The central locking is still fine, but the drivers side lock tends to be slower than it used to be when it was new.
I like the space especially at the back, and the automatic locking at 30km/h, and unlocking when the the key is pulled off the ignition.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
