Good car, needs better seats, as they don't hold you in... at all
Not much really, just a few rattles coming from the rear seatbelt mounts, and it needed a new water door seal on the driver's side. All fixed under warranty.
Great car to drive. Would have been the best car I had driven if the seats just held you in a bit more, and it had handles for passengers to hold when going round sharp corners.
Very nippy, not great on the motorway though as it feels a bit nervous and can really suffer when there's a slight breeze. Good thing this car was made by Toyota, so it should be reliable, unlike most Peugeots. I would have got an Aygo, but they were an extra 800 premium.
Mine did not come with a glove box, which was really silly, so I got the dealer to put one in. Gotta keep CDs out of display.
Fuel, errm OK I guess, nothing to shout about. 40 MPG around town, or about 200 miles to £20 pounds at 87.9p a litre, that works out about right I think.
Insurance group 1, but with a clean licence at 21, I'm still paying £850 a year, now to be 1300 with adding my 19 year old girlfriend (a new driver) to it. Not that cheap unless you're over 25 or very lucky. I searched every website, and that's the cheapest around for me.
Crash test is fairly good. 4 star NCAP rating is good ABS, EFBD and CSC all comes as standard, as does 4 airbags, front passenger and side.
Pratical - good for just me, my girlfriend and mates in it time after time. Gets tiring as you have to re-adjust the whole seat forward and angle every time you let some one in and out of the back. Get a 5 door if you have friends.
Just one more comment, that's my right leg, owww, it hurts after a while because my knee rests on the heat selector, and where it's a bit pointy it hurts my leg.
If you want this car, get an Aygo; same car, looks a bit better and Toyota will treat you with some respect, unlike Peugeot who treat you bad from the day you leave the showroom.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
