An underrated hot hatch! (Less common than a Citroen Saxo VTS)
Exhaust needed replacing in 2002, but it gave me an excuse to fit an aftermarket stainless steel exhaust.
Boot light failed to work, but later I found out that the rear spray jet's hose had split. It was repaired by the dealership, however there seems to be water still coming in the boot from somewhere, I will have to investigate it soon.
Lumber supports are wearing, but the fabric in still in tact.
Lighting behind the heating control's has stopped working.
Cassette deck on stereo stopped working, but again, it gave me an excuse to fit an aftermarket item.
This car is a great car, performance is great, and the car is very reliable apart from my mentioned items however I regard most of them to be cosmetic rather than actual running problems.
One of the major problems I have with the car is the steering, which in my opinion is a bit light, which may be fine for less large persons, but I feel if it had a little more feel it would improve it greatly.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
