Brake pads and shoes replaced.
Rear light cluster corroded and leaking.
Anti roll bar replaced.
Power steering failed briefly one day for about an hour.
Reliable to a fault, always starts first time. Starting to show the first signs of rust over the rear wheel arch. Tried to source a new rear light cluster, but 3 door and 5 door cars have different lights. It's not worth paying £200 for a new one from the dealer for a car of this age, but I can't find one yet.
Wearing well otherwise, air con needs topping up, and the transmission fluid might need changing to enable quicker gear changes.
Fuel consumption round town is only about 25 MPG; improves to 35ish on the open road.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
