Front ns strut
Big end (engine replacement needed)
Car is very quick for a NA FWD 2.0l.
Revs all the way up to 8k.
Is a bit heavy on petrol - but that is to be expected from a car with this kind of performance.
Cannot be beaten for the money.
Car handles alright, but it does have a slight tendency to over-steer when put to the test (quite rare in a FWD car!).
Car isn't lacking anything in the looks department - even if kept standard it's still a stunner.
Ride is firm. Seats are comfy - bucket seats all around.
Surprisingly large space in the back - short people will be comfy.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
