For the money, they don't come better than the Multispace


Two small pieces of interior trim fell off. I glued them back on.

Needed a new exhaust pipe at 25000 miles.

General Comments:

My 3 door car was one of the first to arrive in the UK and came with the electric windows / sunroof as standard. At the time, I thought the car was cheap, but has since come down in price to make it probably the best motoring bargain in the UK.

It is roomy, reliable, has good performance for a car of it's size and the boot is just massive.

One criticism was the weak 2-speaker stereo on my car, but I believe that 4 speakers are now fitted.

My previous cars were a VW Golf and Passat. The Multispace beats them both.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
