  • Summary

    4 out of 5 4.0

    What does this car say about you?

    Thinking of economy & practicality in town traffic.

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    Many wish they had one ( but don't see the design faults ).

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    No. The semi-auto gearbox is behind the times and there is no spare wheel; front wheels/tyres are of different size to the rear. Front bulb changes are an expensive dealer task.

    What are you likely to buy next?

    Some micro/mini petrol engine auto box.
