Has to be the best value car in its class
Ambient temperature sensor failed at 35,000 Km. It has no function except to display the outside air temperature, so it wasn't replaced.
I have never had to spend a penny on this car apart from servicing and a new battery. It is the most reliable car I have ever driven, and at a budget price.
Build quality is first class, no rattles or shakes and all doors close firmly.
Interior is good with great headroom. suspension is not of modern Ford or Audi standard, but perfectly adequate.
Only downside is emissions rating is slightly higher than other cars of the same CC, which means higher road tax €333 per annum in Ireland.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
