This is my first car, and to be honest, no other car I have driven compares to it. Awesome ride
I got the car when it had a 'whiny' gear box, could have lived with it, but it was getting worse so I bought a reconditioned one (£130 delivered, not fitted).
I've got a big back box on the exhaust, which is a large weight being thrown around at the back of the car, so it occasionally snapped the joint between back box and the middle pipe, as the middle pipe had gone rusty and let's face it, rotten too. So I had to replace that.
Just to point out, I've had lower and stiffer suspension put in, which makes the ride comfort mark a bit unfair.
This car is a joy to drive, it really picks up speed fast, and sticks to the road like you wouldn't believe.
Back tyres seem to never wear, I've got about loads of miles out of them and they are still looking new. Front ones still last, but not as good as the back.
The economy is very uneven, if you drive sensibly you can make the petrol last all year, but if you drive erratically, you need to fill up every other hour.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
