A very good value for money little run around; ideal as a first car


Nothing since I have owned the car, and everything works perfectly on the car, and it is 11 years old.

General Comments:

I enjoy the seating position, which is quite high, and gives you a good view of the road.

The car is much roomier inside than you would think by looking at it from the outside, and there is loads of head room.

The car is automatic, and only has three gears, so does get noisy and thirsty above 60mph, but below this speed the car is quite nippy, smooth and quiet.

The only annoying thing I have found with this car is that my right knee rests against the drivers door when driving, and this starts to feel quite sore after about 45 minutes of driving.

People here are slating the brakes, but I have found them to be very effective. My daughter complained the other day because I had to brake sharply, and the seat belt caused her some discomfort across her chest as the car stopped so rapidly.

On the whole, the car is very good value for money. Quite roomy and a nice driving position.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
