A serious amount of car for the money. I get 40 mpg. Insurance high though.
Great apart from insurance. Cost £1k for a mint example & only 55k on the clock. Bargain.
On the road
Good handling, bit harsh. 1.6 quick enough. Previous car a Beemer - doesn't compare. But for the money...
110bhp from a 1.6. Good, but if speed is a priority get the turbo or vvc.
Living with it
Only owned for 6 months, but has been 100% perfect. Touch wood!
Well.. I bought it so obviously I think it's cool! Old design now, but still got it in my opinion.
I do 50 miles on the motorway everyday, no problems. Suspension a bit stiff over bumpy roads.
Security and Service
Standard immobiliser. That's it. Get a thatcham job if you're concerned.
They don't exist anymore!
Problems and Ownership
Sweet for a 1.6.
For the money - a superb car.
Did you buy the car new?
Would you buy the same model again?
Did you buy from the same manufacturer again?
