Great little car overall
Added: 19th of June 2017
I bought the 2007 Clio Mk 3 as my first car and I'm amazed at how versatile it is. From a 10 year old, small engine hatchback I was expecting it to be way out of its comfort zone on country roads and long motorway journeys. However, great country driving in this and went from Sheffield to the deep South on less than half a tank without so much as a threat of breaking down. My only issues with the car are its reliability (mostly electrical faults) and the overall performance - punchy for a 1.2 but I could do with some more power now. There's also a lot of body roll on roundabouts and the windscreen pillar is always in the way going round one (might just be my driving position). The car has a big heart and I'm looking at buying the 1.6 GT Clio to succeed this one.
