Catches holding the parcel shelf have broken 3 times. The engine occasionally appears to 'miss' when accelerating gently, could be a carburettor problem but have yet to have it diagnosed. Drivers electric window makes a funny noise but works fine.
Nice car to look at, performance of the carburettor model combined with the 'cat' isn't amazing. Insurance is also high (group 12) for a 1.6 litre. However it is very reliable, smooth and a little bit different.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
