If you like reliable, open top driving and need a family size car this is good
The rubber seals around the front driver window have let in trickles of water in heavy rain. They could be replaced for under £200. I have not been using a silicone spray on them, but will do so on my newer cabrio purchase as this is supposed to help considerably.
No mechanical faults.
This was my fourth Cabrio, beginning in 1985. I now have a fifth one. They have all been the most reliable cars, none needing more than tyres and exhaust, apart from a rear brake cylinder seizing up, but I think that was poor servicing by a local garage.
The tyres do wear quite quickly if you don't change them from front to back.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
