"Nippy and Reliable"

Exterior and Interior

Good body and paintwork. Shiny choice of colours. Interior comfortable and smart looking. Not top of the range but has most modern accessories, but has an older cassette stereo, winder windows and a basic clock, but all are satisfactory for small family use.

Performance and Economy

Does 35mpg approx on town driving, so stopping and going, to 40mpg approx on a longer run. Tends to over rev when started on colder days.

Like to Drive

Very nippy and a pleasure to drive. But mine tends to lose revs when clutch pushed in, so does have the tendency to stall, but no problem when you get used to it. Brakes good and reliable. Enjoy driving my car especially on warm days. <

Faults and Repairs

The internal ventilation system tends to blow hot all day every day irrelevant of blower temperature - changed parts and had it checked but can't get to the bottom of the problem. Over revs on cold days until warm, and can stall when clutch pushed in.
