As close to free driving as you'll ever get!
The heater motor only worked on position 3 & 4 (£3.5 repair).
Glow plugs needed replacing.
Anything else is just general maintenance.
I bought this car for £300... £300.
Since I've bought it, it has had a service, brake discs and brake pads and that's it!
These cars are amazingly reliable! Based on the Honda Civic with a Rover L series diesel (Good enough for Honda to use in their Civic and Accord at the time), this car will just not let you down.
It's roomy, and easily fits in the wife and kids, as well as luggage and prams and stuff.
Granted the interior trim isn't as high quality in the boot for example, but I paid £300... I'd be mad to complain!
It has all the comforts that I would need, and regularly comes out at above 50 mpg!
On the basis of the 20000 miles per annum I do with this car, it is costing me £0.12 to run and that's only because the extortionate diesel prices.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
