Radiator damaged, cooling system pipes corroded, front brake discs warped, exhaust needed replacing, blows out dipstick on very high revs, spark plug fouled by oil, suspect cylinder head need regrinding though car is running OK at present.
A lot of fun to drive. Plenty of grip and plenty of feel through the steering. No body roll at all. Very quick indeed, esp above 4000rpm. Fuel economy poor (26 mpg). Dealers charge the earth for servicing. Hasn't been 100% reliable. Not the best built car but has a nice interior. Great stereo.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
