Van would not start due to flat battery so I bought a new one. (no problems after)
Had to replace rear brake cylinder for MOT which was expensive.
I liked the van to start and kept it for one Year.
But being a very young driver could not afford insurance of 1,000 pounds approximately per year.
The van drove better when it was fully loaded as it bounced around when empty.
I liked the fact that it had twin side loading doors, and found them very useful.
The van got blown around in the wind a lot.
The interior space was very useful and the build quality was good.
The engine being 1 litre was not powerful enough and was quite sluggish when pulling out at junctions.
The van was extremely reliable apart from the dead battery. The heater worked well.
The brakes were not as good as a relatives old volvo as the van had drum brakes and the volvo had disk brakes.
The van would be perfect for driving round town, but would be uncomfortable on long journeys.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
