Excellent value for money, easy to see why it is a best seller.


Other than two manufacturers recalls, one for the brake pedal attachment and the other for the front suspension - nothing what so ever - excellent reliability.

General Comments:

Excellent car - best of the eight previous cars I've had to date.

1.8 is a little thirsty, most of my driving is urban, short runs where mpg averages around 29 - 30 mpg.

1.8 has plenty of power, even when towing.

Cabin a bit plastic, but functional, trays on backs of front seats a must for the kids.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
