If you are cheap transport a little different from the norm, I would recommend it
At 55,000 miles the head gasket blew.
At 62,000 miles the camshaft needed replacing along with all the lifters and valves (€1500)
Heater controls broke, but easy fix myself.
Fuel line into the tank perished, easy fix myself.
Driver's passenger window electrics fail intermittently.
Suspension needs replacing (Shocks and Bushes) but can live with it for a while as it makes little impact on day to day use.
Performance is terrible, the car is flat out at 80mph and it's always a close race between myself and buses as the lights change green.
I get a decent car allowance with my work and eyebrows are always raised as I pull into the company car park in it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
