Summary:

Excellent first car

Faults:

The car didn't start when I got it, and I had to replace the ignition cables (not cheap)

Carpet on floor looked like rats had been knawing at it, nothing a few good floor mats couldn't fix.

General Comments:

It has to be the smallest car I have ever been in. The seats don't go back far enough at the rattles are so bad you can't even drown them out with the radio.

Performance wise it's not a bad little car. Good on petrol, wheels spin at random (e.g in the middle of a driving test) handles well though.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
