Summary:

Not love at first sight, but a gradual affection

Faults:

Wind noise and noise from the front seat panels. Windows tends to misalign when operated.

Made for the Japanese market, thus superior in workmanship and quality. But certain parts only available in Japan.

110bhp from the 1.8 litre engine is disappointing.

Not all round disc brakes, another setback.

General Comments:

A great reliable and comfortable car.

6 years old and no major parts replacements and repairs.
