A solid little bargain
The battery died, but I have a big stereo so that is to be expected.
The gearbox linkage failed, then the replacement unit started to stiffen after a couple of months. The dealership replaced it with no quibbling and the new one is fine.
I bought the car because I thought it would be a lot of car for the money, I have not been disapointed.
The interior is a bit tacky, motorway driving is quite noisy and the steering is quite heavy when parking.
But it is reasonably nippy, the handling is predictable and the load capacity is amazing.
This is my first car and the value for money and low insurance has been great.
So much so that I am buying one for my girlfriend as her first car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
