A great car, cheap, roomy but not fast
Leaking Thermostat gasket.
Ticking speedo cable.
Broken throttle cable.
ECU fault leading to poor MPG.
After the Ford KA the amount of space in this budget estate was great. Performance is not that great unless you work the engine hard, although it happily keeps up with traffic around town. The seats are not quite as long as they need to be to my mind, but the car is comfortable and the fairly well thought out. The ride is excellent and with the exception of body roll when cornering it's easy to forget you're in a budget car.
I have encountered some minor failures, detailed above, which whilst annoying were not the end of the world. The dealer service has been exemplary, so much so that I can't find any complaint, even if I try hard.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
