A solid performance car
The car has had a fuel starvation fault.
The front valance needs replacing.
The passenger door handle is inoperable.
This car looks like the sensible slow family car, but with the 2 litre engine it handle more like a sports saloon. It has surprised more than one sporty car driver before now.
The interior is well put together and is not likely to fall apart and has more features than some executive saloons.
The heater is a blessing in disguise, you can have cold or hot air on demand.
The boot is enormous for a car of it's size.
The car is built like a tank, even though it is 17 years old I believe it is safer than some modern equivalents.
The only downside to this vehicle is the higher than normal fuel costs, but all in all it is worth the sacrifice.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
