A stylish bargain
At 100,00 miles the lower control arm bushes and ball joints were replaced which is reasonable on a car at this mileage. The air con pump squeals at idle sometimes.The sound disappears on revving the engine or turning the A/C on. Nothing else except a couple of bulbs.
I change the oil every 3000 miles and use synthetic. I give the car a fairly hard life, but it can take it. Parts are easy to get even in the U. K It looks good. It shifts and it handles well, not up to a BMW, but only half the price. Speed limiter is annoying. Under steer frightening if you thrash it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
