Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
What was the dealer like?
Pleasant to deal with and managed to get a reasonable deal for the area and price.
What's it like to drive?
Lots of body roll but very easy to drive and refined. Can be a bit sluggish in 4th and 5th gears and likes being revved in the lower gears to get the most from it, but is surprisingly gutsy for an 8v 1.6.
What's it like to park?
Easy to park and fits into some incredibly tiny spaces if need be.
Living with it

Holds 5 easily for day trips and has good luggage space for camping equipment and holidays.
