A good reliable car with lots of power for your pounds
Wheel arches are beginning to corrode badly and some spots are also appearing round the sun-roof.
Strange knocking sound from the near-side rear suspension... any ideas?
Electric aerial sounds terrible.
Burns a little oil too!
I bought this car a year ago and apart from a few niggly problems it has been very reliable, starts first time even on the coldest mornings.
The performance for a car of its age and mileage is superb. It will take on and beat most hot hatches and corners like a dream.
Seats are comfortable for the first hour, after that I find my back aches due to the lack of lumbar support. Cabin is about as roomy as you would expect from a 2+2 (don't expect any tall friends to sit in the back).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
