Cheap, reliable, huge. Perfect
Didn't start one day, due to the fact the previous owner hadn't put the earth on the battery properly. Simple fix.
Lots of clonking from the front suspension. I am going to get it checked out - lots of torque steer when accelerating lightly, so something is not right.
Brakes not brilliant, but do the job okay - it is a large car after all.
Starts first time. Idles great. No excessive smoke. Cruises at 80mph @ 3000rpm and returns approx 55mpg. Handles quite well for a large car. Very powerful feeling from 60-90mph.
Mine is the estate, and it's got tons of boot space.
Don't like the seats much, they're quite bucket-like, which is annoying. Might swap them out for older style seats, which are flatter and softer.
Paintwork was a mess due to lack of care from previous owners. No rust as it's galvanised, but lots of scratches. I have painted the car with a roller, and looks much better hehe.
Hoping to keep it another year and see if I can get it to 300k on the clock - will be the highest mileage car I've ever owned. Brilliant!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
