Excellent all round vehicle at a reasonable price


Absolutely nothing with this new one (only had it for a week) and the previous one was perfect until the exhaust blew just before it was returned to the lease company.

General Comments:

This is the best and most reliable vehicle I've ever driven - so good, in fact, that I have just taken the identical model on lease for a further 3 years.

We had the first one as an "R" reg - one of the first to be produced and very hard to come by. It never let us down once which is the reason we've had another. The newer version has much more power, especially in higher gears.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
