In short - great car when running, but an absolute pain when it breaks (again)
First thing to go wrong was the after sales service from the dealer - so bad that my wife still refuses to have any dealings with them!! Could be a one off.
Then the air conditioning packed in, was not critical by any means, hardly used it being a permanently freezing Scot anyway.
A year into my ownership the Alternator packed in.
Recently the rear wiper motor gave up the ghost, as did the rear wiring loom.
Alright to drive, seems to have a dead point in the acceleration, as ratio of gears between first and second gear does not seem consistent.
Great for driving in the motorway, but not nice if you're driving in town.
No Haynes manual ever written for this model!
Comedy under-steer, but thankfully not as bad as the Smart!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
