A car that you won't want to get out of
At 99000 miles, the air con pump failed. Cost 1600 euro to repair.
When the pumps fails, it pulls the fan belt off the pulleys, and as a precaution, the engine shuts down.
Nothing else to report otherwise.
Have this car for the last few years. Has proved very reliable.
The fuel economy is excellent when driven at 100km on the motorway. Put up 1000 miles on it one day during the summer, with no problems. Only fault would be under 2000rpm, there is turbo lag. But once it hits 2000rpms, it's great.
Best described as a wolf in sheep's clothing.
Recently started towing a caravan; 1100kgs, no problem with hills, and fuel figures still in the high 30's.
The inside could be brighter.
Still on its original clutch and suspension.
Servicing is cheap.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
