One of the best combinations you'll ever find in terms of practicality, reliability, and economy
Intermittent loss of power with no reaction on pressing the accelerator - easily remedied with replacement of the distributor cap and HT leads (cost less than £80). Apart from this I have enjoyed three years of trouble free motoring.
Probably the greatest accolade I can give the GT is the fact that I have just bought another one!! My older eGT has given me countless hours of enjoyment and the car's performance has surprised many a boy racer in his 'hot hatch'. (I also surprised a friend in his Pug Mi16 which he thought was a Ferrari in disguise!)
But it is not just the performance of the car - with a baby and two dogs (one an oversized greyhound), most people would think that a Volvo 850 would be the only car to satisfy my requirements. The big boot of my hatchback means my dogs can happily snooze away the miles although admittedly, if we are spending more than a weekend away, the roofbox is required to fit in all of the luggage.
Economy is excellent, although hard acceleration does make a noticeable diffence. Reliability has been superb even though I have never submitted my car to a Nissan dealer for servicing.
Hey, even my wife likes the car and she originally wanted a Mondeo estate - yuk!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
