What was the dealer like?
What's it like to drive?
The car is brilliant to drive, the engine sounds way more powerful than it is, and will scream to speed quite rapidly, the light body can leave some hairy moments if you go into a corner too fast, but the suspension set-up (all independent) means the car is very easy to keep on track. The lack of power steering isn't noticeable in such a light car. Clutch and throttle are light, and responsive, brakes are excellent.
What's it like to park?
Car is very easy to Park, PAS is not an issue, and car goes into spaces easily and without much driver effort.
Living with it
Have you had any problems with the car?
The drivers window. kept coming out of it's channel, and we had difficulty winding it sometimes,.
What's most practical about your car?
The engine. The 1.0L 3cyl engine was the best I ever drove. There was always power, and you could rev it to bits, and still get great fuel economy. The gearing is great giving 2500RPM in 5th gear at 60MPH. The car is practical for both city and long journeys.
