    February 2010

    Did you get a good deal and why?

    I feel I did, hadn't seen any other 03 plate cars for this price that were in good condition with full MOT and tax. I managed to get £100 off the asking price and got the dealer to fix a few little things that were niggling me and new tyres.

    Is there any special reason why you bought this car?

    Was looking for a nice little used car on a budget.

    What was the dealer like?

    Friendly, willing to negotiate within reason and fixed any little things I wasn't happy with.

  • Driving it

    3 out of 5 3.0

    What's it like to drive?

    Nice to drive and a quiet engine, slight rattle coming from the dash when going up hill if in a higher gear but nothing at all to worry about, to be expected in a cheaper used car.

    What's it like to park?

    No problem

    Not gone wrong as such but cambelt was due a change and no proof of that in service history so got that done as didn't want to risk it going and causing big problems with the engine.

    It's a cheap, stylish little car.
