Pleasure to drive
Leaking oil from sump gasket. Cost to replace was high.
Front disks warped.
Had modification done to balance shaft seal to stop it popping out as per service bulletin.
Handling is like on rails.
Economical with 28mpg (imperial) town running and 36mpg open road being regularly achieved. Fitted K&N filter.
Very rare car with V-Tec and auto as most are manual. Also has Twin Airbags, 4WS, ABS, Traction control.
Front seats comfortable. Rear seats are a joke.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
