Good runner and first car!! not just a car for the ladies
Left Side Drive shaft needed replacing.
Cigar Lighter shorted out.
Very good first car, I've seen a lot of reviews complaining about the pedals too close together which is true, they are close together, but it took me about 5 minutes to get used to that, its very cheap on petrol can do a 40 mile round trip every work day for about £15 - 20 a week depending on how I drive it, accelerates well for the engine size, out accelerated a 1.3 '96 fiesta earlier today which was a giggle, doesn't like going uphill too much, but that's nothing to worry about as when you get used to i, you learn how to handle uphill slopes.
Can keep up with traffic on the motorway, but the engine makes quite a bit of noise, the inside cabin is of a very good build quality, everything seems to work fine, not too plasticy.
Very good first car and a good runner has served me well 9/10.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
