Superb design and performance
Does not like the cold weather as this makes the handbrake stick - leave it in gear and it is no problem.
Burns a little oil, maybe 1 litre per 3,000 miles, keep an eye on the pressure guage and it is no problem.
Grin inducingly blindingly fast, nothing short of a 911 or Impreza WRX will stick with it.
Surprisingly sensible, loads of room in the boot and rear seats (much better than a GTV), loads of space for the baby seat.
I would buy another tomorrow, the running cost is more than offset by the bargain purchase price.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
