Rapid, reliable, but nowadays an enthusiasts vehicle
MOT failure as follows:
Front anti-roll bar bushes disintegrated.
Leaking oil from power steering.
New steering rack (a heart stopping £270).
New nearside rear calliper.
Rear suspension arms required a lot of welding.
Heated front seats failed.
Air con failed.
I owned a 505 manual diesel previous to this car - the V6 automatic is an infinitely better car.
Handling and ride excellent.
A vehicle not without it's problems, but for a total cost including purchase and MOT works of under £1000, there are not many 120mph cars like this one!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
