Reliable and surprising, but dull looking
Radiator fins dropped out. Replaced on 143000 miles.
Leaking water pump leaked. Detected and replaced at 143000 miles.
Worn rear suspension link.
Drivers electric window pops out of rail, but has never fallen out.
Surprising! To look at it's a little bit dull inside and out, but despite the fact it's a 1.6 it goes faster than a lot of 2.0 cars.
The handling is also sharp and I've never had the guts to go as fast as it requires to lose the front end.
Despite problems, it's been very reliable considering the mileage.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
