Cheap to buy, but expensive to keep
Head gasket blew at 58,000 miles, and head bolts had to be replaced as well due to rust. Total cost, over £800.00.
Heater matrix stopped working at 60,000 miles.
Front shockers had to be replaced about the same time.
The general build quality is quite good, although things like internal fittings leave a lot to be desired. The seats are rather thin and not very comfortable.
Fuel consumption is not very good at all, which was one of the reasons I decided not to keep it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
