If it didn't keep going wrong, it would be brilliant
Camshaft seals worn, causing a major oil leak.
Car misfiring constantly; apparently being caused by a faulty coil pack, which is soon to be replaced for 300 quid.
Wheel arch liners came loose on the front arches.
On my previous VTR, and now my VTS, the thrust bearing makes a very loud noise.
Before the misfiring started, the car was kicking out 137bhp with a K&N, de-cat pipe and a full stainless exhaust. It was fun to drive, and would make most boy racers look stupid off the lights. Top end I got 137mph with a bit left, so it ain't too slow for a little hot hatch.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
