Safe, solid and dependable, with exciting handling
Nothing has gone wrong with it except for a blown headlight bulb at 85000. A cheap fix.
Still on the original brakes.
Not the fastest car, but certainly one of the best handling.
The boot is spacious; larger than some wagons.
Has thoughtful touches like hill hold and gradual interior light dimmer.
The basic version still has 2 airbags, ABS, and 3 proper belts in the rear.
It feels very safe and solid when you drive it.
Paintwork has really stood the test of time.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
