A really good buy, that's why I've kept it so long
Just minor faults.
The exhaust blows after 3 years, then again after 6 years.
After 48,000 miles the car overheated, which was caused by a leaking pipe, which was fixed for under £20, but the temperature gauge still shows the car is overheating.
The car is still running very well today, nearly nine years after I bought it.
The car is good enough for normal driving. I do about 400 miles a week now, after rarely using the car in the first few years, and it's still very reliable, and able to keep up with all the other cars out there.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
