This car is so reliable it even started after being pulled out of a ditch sideways
Stereo use to switch itself off for no reason when I first got the car (apparently quite common). Replaced under warranty.
Engine overheated at 65000 miles, took the thermostat out, been fine ever since.
Really plain/bland completely anonymous.
Interior has got too many hard plastics and does not feel cosy, seats are too hard, space is too tight in the back, tape player can't be replaced by a CD player.
Ride is harsh and uncomfortable, suspension is unsettled, steering is vague, traction is really poor in the wet almost dangerous...
On the plus point, the engine is very nice and willing, the boot is MASSIVE, and good mpg can be achieved if you know how to drive it..
All in all, I would definitely fancy a different car, something newer and better, but don't really want to get rid of my Cordoba, as it has been so utterly reliable.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
