Chic, cheap, fun motoring!
Minor rattles from the interior... that's it.
A great little car - economical (I average 45 MPG per tank with a mix of driving), fairly nippy, fairly well built, very stylish, perfect for the city, cheap to run.
The engine & transmission are perfectly matched, gear ratios are spot on, and you can cruise at 80 on the motor way - it's rock solid there. It's quite noisy on the motorway; you need to stop every couple of hours for a break.
The radio reception is really poor, as is the sound from the speakers. Blue & Me works well with Bluetooth to my iPhone 4, but sometimes you need to repeat your instruction several times. (I updated it to the latest software). However, Blue and Me refuses to play nicely with our 2 iPod Classics; the Mac-formatted one doesn't work at all, and the PC-formatted one doesn't work properly (tracks are missing). It's also incredibly fiddly (I would say dangerous) to control through the steering wheel.
There is a surprising amount of room in the boot, but fitting adults into the back seats is a real challenge.
I really like this car, it s small, agile, chic and goes well. However, the rattles from the interior annoy me, and although it's built well by Italian standards, it's no Audi in terms of build quality.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
