Frugal, comfortable brood wagon
Front seat armrest became loose.
Seat trim (front seats) 'bobbles' in corners of seat pads (Vivaldi cloth trim) - but can be removed with rubber gloves on (ie. friction!)
Impressively light on fuel (average 52 MPG on the motorway).
Interior appears rugged enough to withstand our three kids.
Lack of rear middle 3-point belt is an annoyance - Lap belt only.
Have fitted an injection program remapper - for the VP44 ECU - Supplied by www.tuningbox.com.
This has boosted performance to 120 BHP, *BUT* also improved economy on longer trips - according to the Drive Computer.
A 'Hot Diesel'?
Very happy with the vehicle generally.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
