Great first car
Exhaust back box needed to be replaced.
Front brake disks and pads needed replacing.
Dash was damaged.
This has been a great first car.
Parts are dirt cheap to buy so not expensive to repair.
Its faster than I expected for the engine size.
The fuel consumption is great, you can get a half tank of petrol for £10 which lasts for ages.
The only downfall is that novas are getting long in the tooth and good examples are hard to find as most have been thrashed or eaten away by rust.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
