Fantastic, best car I have owned!
The only fault I can report in 3 years of driving is a torn seat cover and this year the car failed the mot on a leaking brake caliper, which was fixed in an hour and then passed the MOT without other problems. Previous 2 years the car passed the MOT without problem.
Excellent little car for a lady to drive.
Goes well, good speed, cruises down the motorway quite happily on trips up to Cheshire from Surrey.
As far as handling goes, back end slides out a bit on slippery or icy roads. Bit disconcerting the first time it did it, but a change of tyres helped.
Removed strengthening bar to put in style bars, this has made a difference to the handling, feels less stiff and I can now throw it round corners better!
Obviously boot rather small, but once you learn to pack it carefully and adjust for the space - not a problem, unless you are off to the airport of course.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
