Dull, boring, plodder
Nothing so far.
I don't like this car. It's reliable, always starts first time, hasn't let me down yet, but I just don't like it.
Steering is woolly and approximate. A very poor turning circle for the size of the car, almost catastrophic understeer at any reasonable speed. Makes maneouvres such as parallel parking, or reverse parking very difficult. More four-acre field than sixpence turning.
Acres of grey plastic, very dull and uninspiring interior.
Bits break off the interior, switches, vent nubbins. I have a pile of stuff waiting to be glued back on.
Revs up to 3500 before it will change from 1st to 2nd gear, pouring fuel through the engine. May just need the transmission fluid changing.
Thrashy and rough at motorway speeds, never quite knows which gear to be in, and top gear is too high; it needs another gear to make it run smoothly at cruising speeds.
Equipment levels are way behind similar cars of the same age.
I bought the car because of its reputation for reliability, but that comes at the cost of an interesting or comfortable drive.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
