Couldn't have spent a better hundred pounds


The car has been totaly reliable, only having to replace the front brake hose, tyres, three bulbs and the rear exhaust box.

General Comments:

The car travels approximately 40 miles a day at present along rough country roads, usually towing a trailer, without any problems. The only thing it will need in the future is a new front wing.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
