Want to know everything there is to know about this car?

In their own words

Bought Lookers ex demo of the 1.5 165 PS version specified above (but now missing from Parkers specs list). SRI brings lowered stiffened suspension, Aluminium bonnet, and trims. The engine is all aluminium, with super responsive turbo. This means the front end is super light and has nice turn in for a big car, though its not a rally car. The trims help make it super slippy. The turbo responds more like a supercharger so this car can waft like a jag and destroy motor way miles cheaply (350 miles for 4 large adults, done quickly is one full tank). The small engine (the GM Small engine, the later 1.6 200ps is the medium engine) makes it a bit slower off the line than some mild hybrids but get to third and it behaves much like an electric car with awesome acceleration, so fun on fast twisting roads. Comfy in part leather trim and only missing adaptive cruise control compared to luxury saloons, a bargain for the GM rather than later Peugeot part cars. Would say the top coat is soft and scratches easily, which shows on darker cars and had a couple of very minor (but captured in software and reset successfully) electrical glitches All in all, in this guise, this is a really great car. GM's last European designed and built car after 100 years and possibly their best.

How reliable do you find the car?

Couple of recent electrical glitches with AEB switching off. Have returned to full working order.
