Very reliable and simple, would recommend


Nothing really.

Just a crack in the windscreen, but that was from when the previous owner had it, and I was told before buying the car.

General Comments:

Brilliant for learners, beginners and others who just need a small, cheap car to get them from A to B, but without having an old pile of rubbish. Very reliable, lowest insurance group so fairly cheap even for beginners. Also, the small dimensions make it easy to park and fit in smaller spaces. As well as this, it's very roomy for such a small car.

Only complaint is that electric mirrors and remote lock were not standard. They were an optional extra, and the previous owner obviously wasn't as bothered as me! However, the higher spec Urban Fox does have them as standard, so they're easy to find.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
