Summary:

Superb performance, looks good...

Faults:

Not much at all (which is why we still have it), just wear and tear...

General Comments:

This car is the most reliable car we have ever had, starts every time, goes like fury, but we drive it at 65mph usually. Handles well on the road, and very good for a town car...

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Summary:

A weapon, a demon, my beast...

Faults:

The heater matrix has recently stopped working, therefore no heat in the car.

The CV joints are just starting to give up the ghost.

General Comments:

I've been in some very fast cars, but for a car that is only 1 litre I wouldn't part with it for any other on the road.

There's only 1 car that comes close around my town and that's the Renault 5 GT Turbo Taider.

This car is a 1 litre demon on wheels...

Sorry, can't find ant bad points about my baby...

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
