A good car let down by its gearbox
The automatic gearbox failed at 53,000 miles. It cost £1900 to repair. That was almost half the cars value!
The garage said the gearbox on small cars don't last more than 50,000 miles, so I got rid of mine long before it approached 100,000. I bought a manual one.
Aside from transmission problems, the car was very easy to drive and quite cheap to run.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
