Clutch (100K) and other normal wear and tear items, Headlamp switch only failure, otherwise reliable over last 60K.
Rust on back/bottom corners of rear doors and trim panels. Better than my 9 year old Rover 820.
6 Cylinder engine excellent, very smooth, but thirsty when used hard (down to 15mpg, normally around 25-30). Regular servicing essential, twin carbs are hard to balance.
Excellent ride, reasonable handling. Quiet. Lots of space.
Very durable well made car, (this one must have been built mid-week) and much better than reputation.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
