The car was individual, reliable for its age and, very inexpensive to run. Insurance was less than £100 per year for a male under 25 (in 1994). The car returned over 50 miles to the gallon if driven carefully, and cost just £100 in parts / repairs to keep on the road for 3 years. In addition I had the oil changed every 5000 miles.
Although performance was never the 100A's strong point, it could keep up with modern traffic to speeds of about 40 miles per hour. Any faster, and the car struggled a bit.
For a small car, the interior was very spacious and the car was surprisingly comfortable on long journeys. The cabin was a little noisy at speeds much over 55 mph.
The steering was light and responsive, and the visibility was excellent.
The only irritating feature on the car was the stay which held the boot lid open and needed to be manually released before the boot could be closed.
