Car was recalled for replacement engine fan.
Passenger seat, sliders have failed twice, meaning each time you let someone into the back the seat has to to returned to the furthest back position.
I love this car, the engine is fantastic, real GTi style performance with a regular return of 50mpg, most overtaking can be done in fifth gear with no hassle.
My daily commute of 100miles taking in motorway, A roads B roads and town centres, the car copes brillantly, with a good ride if not as sporting as the body suggest.
Although the drivers seat can take a life time to set up just right, but it can be done eventually.
And its seriously good value, six air bags, air con, alloy wheels, and the best looking three door car around.
No squeaks or rattles yet, and nothing has fallen off, the dealer has been great (even got a get well card soon after buying the car, when I took ill).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
