It needed a new alternator.
It drinks oil for some reason.
Needed a new bumper, front left headlamp and wheel, after I drove it into a bush!
Now the windscreen has cracked from bottom nearly to top!
Computer says oil needs checking, again!
Bulb needs changing on brake light.
Trim rattles, which is very annoying.
My dad got this car in 1997 and put me on the insurance in 2000, so in effect this was my first car, and what a car to drive for your first car!
This car is very fast and can beat any boy racers in their Nova SRi's and XR3i's at the lights.
My dad claims to have had it up to 130mph and said it could have gone further, but he didn't want to try it.
It looks like a sensible car which is why it is probably so under-estimated, but underneath that bonnet is a beast!
It is quite insurance friendly also, even if I did have my own insurance and wasn't on my dads.
Everyone came to college in their Metros and Micras and it just made me laugh when these people tried to race home with me!
Fuel consumption isn't bad either, only if driven in a sensible manner, which I never really did!
It's at its best on the motorway and cruises very well. It is also very comfortable.
The trim is rattly and is hanging on the passenger door by a thread, but if the stereo is turned up you can't hear them.
It is a fantastic car and I still go out in it when I'm missing the thrill!, as my Corsa TD doesn't offer the same performance.
