Overview

"Not up to much"

Exterior and Interior

Dull, boring and cheap looking, not much space inside and exterior has a mouse like appearance, however well built exterior, good paintwork, ground sniffer, extremely boring common car, really wish I had not bought it, not spacious inside.

Performance and Economy

Slow, no poke, boring drive, petrol guzzler (even for a 1.4l engine) cannot wait to finish paying for this car so I can get rid, its totally dull as dishwater, make sure you have plenty of time when pulling off as its a slow starter.

Like to Drive

Boring, blind spots, not exciting at all, like driving a milk float (but not as noisy), quite quiet engine which is good, air con is a plus, however using it is not economical. Make sure you have plenty of time to pull off at a roundabout etc as its a slow starter and it loses power randomly too, rubbish in the snow/ice/wet... <

Faults and Repairs

Blind spots, electrical faults, battery drain, wheel alignment - rubbish. Need a new tyre and wheel alignment every MOT.
