Summary:

Buy a proper car!

Faults:

Manufacturer recall to fix brake pedal failure.

Replacement throttle pedal, which should have been a warranty repair, but which we had to pay for (7100km).

New fuel pump (approx £425) required at 9500km.

Fuel gauge now not working (9500km).

General Comments:

Small, uncomfortable, underpowered, and makes a good shopping cart.

Economical, but it needs to be to finance the repairs quoted above.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
