    Works in a trade judging by the current state of it.

  • Driving it

    5 out of 5 5.0

    What's it like to drive?

    Feels alot like a slightly bigger Clio I would say, is quite a nippy run about when empty but surprisingly for an old 1.4 8v petrol engine it still pulls from low revs when fully laden.

    What's it like to park?

    This version has all the windows so is just like parking a small hatchback, very easy.

  • Living with it

    5 out of 5 5.0

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    Exhaust manifold has a crack but just bandaged up with lagging, exhaust blows at pretty much any joint and engine leaks oil onto exhaust which stinks when stationary with the engine running.

    What's most practical about your car?

    Has been well and truly used and abused by me, filling it with half ton of garden waste, all kinds of heavy machinery, paving slabs and 5 heavy lads in boots. Even at 140,000 miles it still takes it.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    Base model comes with no options and no luxuries apart from power steering.
