A quick, reliable and economical diesel for a low price
Small plastic clip broke between the clutch pedal and cable, thus disabling the use of the clutch.
Had to replace worn rear rubber mountings due to an irritating knocking.
For a diesel this car goes very quick if driven hard. Can happily take a 1.6, 16 valve escort. Yet can still be very economical if driven well. Over 600miles per 11.5 gallon tank. Nearly an average of 60mpg!
Very quiet for a diesel, but some times smokes and runs unsmoothly at idle when cold.
Extremely good value for money.
Very comfortable suspension, but not so good at road holding.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
