Astonishingly reliable, with no major parts needing replacement in nearly 80k miles.
Bodywork prone to rust, especially around the wheel arches and the bottoms of the doors.
Noisy, especially at motorway speeds.
Low specification generally - no fuel light made for a couple of embarrassing moments when I didn't concentrate on how much was left.
Extremely reliable and very low running costs overall. This is a no frills, basic workhorse. Recommended if you are doing high mileage, but there are now fewer around that are still in good condition.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
