High performance, good load carrier
The water pump bearing started getting noisy at 70,000 miles, but I didn't get round to it in time (my fault). When it finally disintegrated it took the cam belt and two valves with it. The high repair cost was therefore mostly my own fault.
One of the rear suspension spring hangers needed replacement due to rust for the last MoT (April) - 68,000 miles.
I like this car. It is very quick and has a huge carrying capacity; brilliant for getting the family and all its luggage and chattels around without getting bored by a plodding performance.
The suspension should probably be a bit tighter for such a powerful car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
