This one has been so good that I have just ordered a new 1.6 HDi Exclusive 110BHP
Soon after one service, it developed a loud metallic noise at high speed, but this turned out to be the oil filler cap, which had been dropped into the engine compartment by the mechanic and not recovered. It was in the garage 3 times before the cause was discovered.
Other than this, absolutely nothing has gone wrong.
This has been the most reliable and cheap to run car I have ever had. I have had at least 15 cars, including several company cars.
Fuel economy is at its best with a light foot, and it's worth knowing that when your foot comes off the throttle, consumption is zero.
It is deceptively powerful with plenty of torque, though sometimes overtaking needs a bit of forward planning.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
