When pulling out onto a main road in the morning, car loses all power. It's like taking off in 5th gear for 3 or 4 seconds which can be very dangerous.
Rolls quite a lot.
Extremely under powered. Similar 1.4 petrol models have a great deal more power.
Dealer has told us that the problem with early morning sluggishness is due to 2005 emissions restrictions and that there is nothing they can do. They have suggested we over rev the car to compensate. Sounds like a old 1982 Fiesta I had.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
