A great first car, with good tuning potential
The battery was being drained when the car was off, traced to a a short circuit or faulty wiring at the rear window heaters.
CV joints are starting to knock loudly on tight corners (constant velocity joints), need replacing soon.
Clutch appears to slip at high revs, but it might just be me not releasing the pedal quickly enough.
Nice and nippy car, feels damn fast for a 1.0L.
Took it for a track session at Silverstone Race Circuit, and apart from immense body roll, it has great handling and good gearing (4 speed box), I was doing corners at up to 60mph!!!
Not much head room for my helmet though, a tight squeeze.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
