Good looking, shame driving it is slightly awkward
Central locking motors both failed - cost £250 to replace.
Paint peeling badly from front plastic bumper.
New brakes and a full service cost £425.
Told that head gasket was weeping and needed to be replaced.
I love the shape of this car and it has got well padded seats if a little cramped for someone six foot tall. It handles well with positive steering even though it does roll quite a bit. It does need revving quite hard to make the most of the little engine though and it could use more power especially on motorways. What I don't like about the car is that you cannot see the front at all from the drivers seat, and the pedals especially the brake and the accelerator are far too close together.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
