Summary:

Good reliable family car, but parts and servicing are expensive

Faults:

Front springs.

Heater matrix.

Wheel cylinder.

Heated rear window (still to be fixed).

Bonnet cable & bonnet catch.

Rear inside panels needed replacing as the plastic covering by the window starts to lift off the moulding.

General Comments:

1.8 hasn't got the power for the size of car.

Servicing at the main dealer is too dear as are the parts.

Limited view out of the rear window which makes it hard to park.

Economical on petrol.

Loads of leg room, very large boot capacity.

Paintwork scratches easily.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
