Comfortable, economic car that can occasionally be quite fun
The middle and rear section of the exhaust system fell off at 40,000 miles.
Cylinder Head Gasket leaking at 35,000 miles.
Gearbox can be a little clunky - have a feeling something may go tragically wrong, but I may be worrying too much.
Bodywork dents very easily - I nearly dented the bonnet while polishing it once.
I bought this as a cheap car so that I could get around while saving for a house - so far it is performing well.
It is very cheap to run - I estimate that I get 45mpg when I drive economically, and two services in 18 months have revealed no major problems.
Car is touch slow for my liking, but my previous car was an MR2 so perhaps this is to be expected. It doesn't seem to mind a full load of passengers and luggage.
Very comfortable ride and can be fun round corners - steering is accurate and better than most cars I have driven.
Image is a bit old-fashioned, not a car for those requiring a car to enhance their ego.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
