Nippy and affordable
The alternator went along with fan belts, surprisingly expensive to repair, required Japanese parts, over £200.
Full new exhaust system (excl. manifold)
New front brakes.
Good looking small car in 3dr with metallic blue paint and alloys.
Very nippy in high rev. s for a 1.4. Certainly the best perfomer for its insurance group (Grp 6). Handles OK for small family car.
Economical if driven sensibly. Plenty of creature comforts E/W, E/Sunroof, R/C/L, Alarm immobiliser etc.
Some parts expensive, but generally reliable.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
