Versatile, well built, reliable small SUV
Fuel breather valve above filler cap in cabin cracked and needed gluing to stop a fuel smell in the car. Common fault on these.
Radiator top tank cracked, needed fixing.
Whistling noise in exhaust, a bit annoying, but doesn't affect reliability etc.
Very well built, heavy construction, chassis underneath. Well made for going off road. Not the fastest thing on the open road, but is very capable off road.
High and Low ratio gearing, and the sunroof tilts or comes off, and the entire rear of the roof can be taken off. Very versatile car.
Tows well, even though it's just 1600cc.
Would love another one, but they seem to have gone up in value lately!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
