Reliable, inexpensive motoring
Nothing except routine replacements over 100,000+ miles.
Being a LX it came with electric windows, central locking, sunroof and mirrors that were also heated so on frosty days they would clear quickly - useful. Never broke down or had anything go wrong. Only thing needed replacing over the years were the tyres, exhaust, battery and alternator that you could do with any car. Spacious, comfortable interior with excellent visibility. Still gives high 30s mpg. Economical to run and insure. Prone to rust on rear wheel arches if neglected but these are easy and inexpensive to rectify.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
