Mun-dane-oh turbo diesel
For the MOT it needed a new exhaust (cat back).
New pads & discs.
Passenger window switch unit failed.
Not as cheap to run as I expected it to be, but acceptable.
Power steering is good, although the turning circle is a bit naff.
Plenty of room for a family of 4/5, including a large boot.
I would suggest this car is ideal to purchase as a family car (or 2nd car, maybe for the wife to do the school run / general chores in).
Don't expect lightning performance from this, as you won't get it top end. It's good for just over the 100 mph mark. 0-60, well it does get to 60 (eventually).
Realistic everyday town driving gives around 30 mpg, which isn't bad; just not the 50mpg some tout about the car.
Motorway miles around 40-45 mpg (at best).
Buy a decent coloured one; the paintwork has a surprisingly good finish.
Watch out for the rear bumper crack & flap; the front bumper goes brittle in cold weather!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
