New headlamp due to water ingress at 2,000 miles (warranty)
New water pumps at 12,000 miles and 18,000 miles (warranty)
Engine coolant leaks at 28,000 (warranty) and 32,000 miles (£60)
Blown cylinder head gasket at 32,000 miles (£450)
Poor starting and "engine fault light"especially in warm humid weather.
I am glad I took out a 4 year warranty. Unfortunately it had expired when the head gasket blew.
The car has been treated gently and covered less than 7,000 m per year.
When it works the engine is lively! The handling is mediocre.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
