A great small car I'd recommend to all


1.A light at the back and two in the front during 4 years.

2. Battery just when completing 4 years ownership.

3. Light stalk was very sensitive and would flash headlamps unintentionally; changed under guarantee.

General Comments:

A perfect second car for the family; roomy, extremely reliable; economical and even stylish.

The ride could have been a little more supple and the electric power-steering lacks feel.

The quality of the interior is excellent and everything is still perfectly intact without any squeaks.

One does hear some suspension noises going over 'speed-bumps'.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
