Front exhaust pipe blew.

Front spots don't work well.

Water leak.

Electric window motors gone (both).

General Comments:

Well quick, I reckon it's the best sporty 1.4 around.

Ideal first car.

Good features for the money (windows, interior).

Beats most cars off the mark though the person you beat won't be expecting that (unless kitted up eg. spoiler, wheels).

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
