Great hot hatch let down by patchy build quality
Nothing as yet but it is all just about hanging in there. The whole feel of the car is that of one about to self-implode. Servicing is not cheap for a hot hatch with dealers unhelpful.
Large wind noise from the passenger side.
Good handling, the best engine with good low down torque and upper end as well. Gearbox is notchy and a bit syrupy. The spare wheel is located under the car and will be stolen if you don't tie it down or put it in the boot.
Overall a great car, if only the build quality was better.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
