Summary:

My little red pocket rocket

Faults:

The front CV joints had to be replaced 4 days after I bought the car.

Alternator and starter motor fried at Christmas last year.

General Comments:

I bought this car because I was looking for something with power, economy, and still enough space to fit four adults in, and it hasn't let me down yet.

This car for its size is pretty quick handles well and loves the open highway, and can still blast commodore v6's off the lights.

The interior is great all those gadgets and hiden holes every woman needs.

Safe and reliable and still heaps of fun.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
