Want to know everything there is to know about this car?
Good value car but don't get it on Personal Lease!
On the road
For the class it's driving is excellent. Much better than others I've had (Audi A4, Astra, Corolla, Golf).
For a 1.6 the engine is good. Pulls well and revs keep going up and up (there's no red line for some reason!)
Living with it
Cut out doing 80 on motorway once - very scary. Problem never fully explained but something to do with coking.
Very common, but doesn't suffer for it. The motor critics love it.
Good comfort generally, but long journeys are a bit of a pain. Could really use a clutch foot rest.
Security and Service
Seems good, but remote locking is very slow.
Average dealer service - Not good, not bad.
Problems and Ownership
Motorway scare mentioned above.
Bloody annoying rattle just won't go away (seems to be coming from driver or rear door area).
Did you buy the car new?
Would you buy the same model again?
Did you buy from the same manufacturer again?
