An under rated hatchback
Had the rear shock absorbers replaced under warranty, but this was probably due to my constant mounting of curbs when living in Nottingham.
Rear washer fluid stopped functioning in 2001.
Battery died in 2001 after a period of Heavy rain.
All in all the car has been void of any serious problems.
Excellent little car. I bought it for the stylish looks and to be a bit different. It also has a very low insurance group than its equivalent golf and ford counterparts (Group 5).
I recently spent £500 improving the cars looks, and its made the car even better! Added a spoiler, alloy wheels (from the fiat coupe) and painted the wing mirrors. I also added a 6 CD changer and a pipercross air filter. The car is excellent and especially when you push it past 4000rpm...
I can't recommend enough.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
