Good quality cheap to run car
Dash Lights occasionally have blown - easy fix.
CV joint at 180,000 miles - can't winge about that!
Anti roll bar bushings at 170,000 - again can't winge.
Radiator developed a hole - this was due to a mechanic mixing G10 and G11 coolants and causing the coolant to turn to mud and negating the rust inhibitor.
A very reliable car. I have had problems with it, but only ever because of mechanics making mistakes, particularly with the timing on the car. I sometimes wonder how they get away with it. Parts replaced and not set up correctly causing endless problems. So, I bought manual and fixed problems myself. If you are that way inclined, your better of. 110,000 miles of good cheap (50mpg) motoring. Car is now at 230,000 and will do same again no problem.
115bhp is a bit week, but cruises fine. 130bhp is much better option.
Roomy interior and comfy ride.
Would buy another tomorrow.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
