An owners nightmare around 100,000
Need a new gearbox, clutch and pressure plate, wheel bearings 8, back brake cylinders, front fog lambs cracked and needed replaced for MOT, gearbox mountain, bonnet rotted at front and had to be replaced, bottom ball joints, two track rod ends, boot back hing snapped and numerous other minor problems.
The 19 diesel non turbo that I have is slow, and can get you into trouble while overtaking. It does about 35 MPG and started using oil around 110,000. The small diesel filter leading to the main one can get blocked at times, and causes the car to jolt while driving. But as for comfort, this car is great.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
