With the exception of fuel cost (26 mpg best, 14 worst), cheap performance.
Before buying the car had lots wrong with it. New radiator, windscreen, speed sensor, engine temperature sensor required. The air conditioning also needed fixing. All of these were fixed by the dealer before purchase.
All new back brakes required immediately after purchase.
Engine would refuse to start from cold. Eventually also had hot starting problems. Traced to another sensor failing intermittently. All fixed free of charge by dealer.
Since being fixed the car has been very reliable. Passed last MOT with flying colors.
Quick car in general driving. Can be very quick indeed if in hurry.
Lacks the brakes to match performance.
Very comfortable cabin with clear easy to use dash.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
