Supermarkets own-brand limo
The CD player has only ever worked when it feels like it. Other than this, the car has been totally reliable.
Consider insurance costs. It was a very expensive vehicle when new and you still pay a hefty premium for this despite the fact that it now well into banger territory.
The car feels like its on tip-toes when trying to drive it fast, but it is supremely stable when motorway cruising. Do not expect a polished chassis as the steering is dull and suspension too soggy.
The motor isn't as weak as people say. It's a heavy car and so its not going to accelerate well, but it hums along strongly at 80mph using little fuel for what is being achieved. The auto-box is agricultural during changes, but the ratios are ideal.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
