Fine - if you can fix your own brakes!
Brakes failed MOT every year.
Brake cable ready to snap after 30000 miles.
Exhaust fell off twice.
Struts needed replaced.
Mystery noise forced me to get rid of it.
Every time I got a service or MOT something seemed to need replaced.
This is not a high performance car, but it was OK for running up and down to work in.
I didn't do a lot of miles or mistreat the car, but it seemed to have a disproportionate amount of problems.
I had to get 3 new sets of brake disks in 3 years and the brake cable was ready to snap after only 30000 miles.
I was forced to get rid of it when it started making a weird noise. It sounded like a wheel baring, but 3 mechanics said they were fine and they had never heard a car making that kind of noise before after years in the business.
This was disappointing because my last car was a Nissan which had done 112000 miles and only cost me £20 in repairs the whole time I had it.
However, it did start every time in the morning.
It looked not bad with the standard alloys and sunroof etc.
It was very cheap to tax and insure and was easy on the petrol.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
