Fast, looks great, a boy racer's dream!
None. Apparently there was a problem with the brakes before I picked it up, but they had it sorted by the time I arrived to collect the car.
Not only does this car look ace, it handles superbly. The steering is so precise and it really shows on winding roads.
Acceleration is good, it's a lot faster than the Focus Zetec I've just traded in.
It comes into its own between 2500 and 3500 RPM - the traction control seems to help acceleration as well.
I'm still getting used to the fact that the rear seats are within reach! The Focus was massive compared to this. But I wanted a sports car, so I've had to compromise on space.
The only criticism I have is that the silver mesh used between the lights should also have been used below the bumper - instead of the black stuff.
Oh well, you can't have everything!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
