Great bang for your buck
Chronic starter motor problems which were eventually fixed by splashing out and buying a brand new starter.
A few electrical niggles, but nothing too bad.
I love these cars (I have another) and would not drive anything else. They are comfortable, stylish (even 15 years down the track) and the simplicity of the engine and running gear means anyone can work on it themselves.
It's just a pleasure to own.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
