Nothing.

General Comments:

Really enjoy driving this car.

Previous cars I've owned have all been big with bigger engines, but not as much fun as the Ignis.

Not as roomy as bigger cars, but It depends what you want It for.

Summary:

Great quality for the price, and perfect for a first car.

Faults:

The clutch is very, very touchy, which means there is a tendency to 'bunny hop' at first. But with familiarisation, this is no problem.

There are some minor grunts when changing gears, this seems to be a case of the car body being a little too heavy for the 1.3 engine. But again, with care and smooth gear changing, I would say that the car is close to being silent.

General Comments:

At times, the car is so quiet I wasn't quite sure if it was going or not!

The lumbar support on the front seats is the best I have come across, sure the seats are firm (you can't expect much from a cheap priced car), but the contours fit like a glove.

The steering and swiftness are superb, and the view through all of the windows is great.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
