My purchase certainly could be classed as a bargain
Nothing except at the last major service cam belts were changed and wheels balanced. Certainly a positive comment was made by the garage doing my service as the the condition of the car generally of being immaculate.
I suppose you'd class the car as rather uutilitarian in structure. Generally very reliable little workhorse for want of better terms.
Never failed to start first time, but I'd put that down to a well run in engine. I bought the car with a full service history. The fact that 70000 (!!) miles of it were done in a 6 month period back in 1999 accounts for the high mileage.
The only basic problem encountered is that of windows steaming up. The niggle is that air through the car is only activated by the fan rather than with natural motion of the car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
