Living with it
Have you had any problems with the car?
Where to start... Leak in the sunroof so when it rained the immobiliser got wet so the car wouldn't start. Was also like a waterfall while sitting inside the car. Ended up sealing the sunroof with silicone.(If anyone has this same problem there is a workaround to bypass the immobiliser not turning off because it is wet by removing one of the fuses. This is handy if you ever get stuck, just google it). Leak from the back passenger doors. When it rained there was a swimming pool in all the footwells. Alternator went. Exhaust pipe between Cat and backbox snapped in half. Battery kept draining. So many other little problems.
What's most practical about your car?
It sometimes Iet me drive it to where I wanted to go. Was a hatchback with rear folding seats. I could load it up with loads of things while I waited for the tow truck to bring me home.
