Reliable budget buy that flies
Exhaust (All 3 parts)
Track rod end
Suspension has just become very soft
Handbrake (Rear brakes locking)
Wheel alignment re-setting every 5000 miles.
I have driven this car really hard over the past 5 years, so no wonder these parts needed replaced.
I have a love/hate relationship with my pride, and driving it hard gives me pleasure.
It's a 1.3 and is faster than any other car in its class barring performance models etc.
I've seen it beat a 1.8 golf up a dual carriage-way hill.
My pride still does 300 miles to a tank costing me £26.
Its still just as quick as it was when it was given to me by my Gran. Just now, I'm loving it.
This car is seriously quick, but handles like a boat on stilts. Great fun.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
