Bargain basement but very reliable
Nothing has ever gone wrong with this car, I just fuel it, service it and it keeps going.
I have driven 33000 miles in this car in less than a year, it is comfortable in that after driving 500 miles in one stint I feel OK. The only problem with one of these is lack of resale value, but it was cheap to begin with. Mine is quite quick, considering it's only a 1.5, but it is a four door, a fair bit lighter than the hatch.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
