Automatic gearbox was weak even when I bought the car secondhand but even so managed 30k miles over 4 years! Finally caused me to give away the car when autobox was beyond further repair. Other than that, only consumables were required.
Bloody marvellous car! Bought for 'banger' price but took us all over UK and France without missing a beat. Supremely comfortable, sits firmly astride the road, tows just about anything, doubles as a van, camper, truck, taxi. Wish I still had it!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
