A classic in the making, but has flaws
Mainly small niggles.
All electric windows work at different speeds, but mainly very slowly.
When weather is severe roof leaks.
Front seats move around and are uncomfortable.
Springs in front catches failed.
Fuel gage inaccurate.
Fuel economy poor and range only about 300miles if driven carefully.
After washing car it will constantly stall for at least an hour after.
A beautiful looking car which you can forgive a lot especially in the summer.
After 61,000 miles the cabin is quite rattly.
Chassis is superb.
Engine, gruff and coarse, but reasonably powerful.
Gearbox vague and notchy.
Interior tacky, gloomy, lots of cheap plastics, seats uncomfortable.
No serious reliability problems.
Overall a good car, but showing it's age. Let down by below average build quality, poor interior and coarse engines.
Great chassis though and when the sun shines it's drop dead gorgeous.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
