Seriously good car, great build quality and good drive
Rear disks worn & grooved - disks replaced.
Radiator blocked - Rad and thermostat replaced.
Rear break pad clips broken - clips replaced.
The Air Con evaporator failed at around 130k a very expensive repair, around £900 in the UK at this age not worth doing.
This has been a great car, it gives what I think is the best compromise between handling and comfort. Stiff enough to be engaging, but still gives a compliant ride on average roads with none of the bump/thump of an out and out sports model.
Economy is around 33 - 34 mpg although 40 mpg is possible with care on motorway driving.
Few faults in a lot of miles and no breakdowns.
Build quality is very good interior looks like a 30,000 miler.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
