    I just started a placement out of town and I needed a little runaround car

  • Driving it

    What's it like to drive?

    easy to drive as 1st car, but hell on the motorway or going uphill. very slow to accelerate (well it was an 800cc). very unsafe and shaky whenever a big car drove past at highspeed. constantly had to drive in far left lane with all the big lorries for fear of my life. driving with more than 2 passengers was like pulling a truckload of bricks

    What's it like to park?

    very easy to park, could squeeze into the tiniest parking spots

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    Yes, loads. 1 - had to replace the brake pads x3 within 6 months 2 - had to replace something else to do with the brakes (can't remember the name)but it cost me £270 3 - the heating constantly had to be repaired (approx 5 times in the short one year period I had the car) - not very nice in the thick of winter 4 - finally knackered out, water tank broke and kept overheating. Basically it was a nightmare of a car
