Good as any other, and better than some
Electrical faults can be very time consuming to find, Dashboard pod is a weak spot, lights will stay on and indicator warning lights won't work if it's on the way out.
Brake warning fault message is common, often broken switch on handbrake, and seatbelt light flashes, usually connectors under the seats. Earth points need to be checked too. And beware of rear coil spring braking.
These cars are getting old now, so some faults should be expected, but if you buy one that has been looked after they are great reliable cars. Lots of secondhand parts available. Main dealers prices are very high. A good skilled D.I.Y person should be able to cope with most repairs, but the electrics are a nightmare if they go wrong.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
