It's a Beast!
Air Conditioning wasnt working when I bought the car. The main dealer looked at it, said it just needed re-gassed and would cost £110 so I told them not to bother. When I went to pick the car up they tried to charge me £38 for looking at it, but the car is under warranty.
I spoke to the manager and they didn't charge me, but the original assistant was very abrupt and refused to give me the keys back until I paid.
Car is faster than a previous HGT I have owned. I am impressed with the performance, have regularly beaten a Civic Type-R from the lights on the way home from work!
I am not 100% sure about the handling of the car, seems to be a bit light at the rear... especially in the wet!!!
I would have another HGT without a doubt.
Considering modifying the engine, induction kit and exhaust, maybe a chip. Fancy taking it to about 180BHP.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
