I'm glad I bought it, it is everything I wanted in a car


Nothing has gone wrong since I bought it. The door open warning noise comes on whether the key is in the ignition or removed. It was doing that when I bought it.

General Comments:

The car looks very stylish for it's age.

It is comfortable to drive with plenty of room in the front. Rear seats have limited headroom.

It's not a car for winning drag races at traffic lights but it is respectable for a 1.5L.

At 18 kilometers per litre of fuel the economy is impressive.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
