Reliable basic car
Added: 13th of October 2013
I have owned this car for 3 years and covered 13000 miles, and apart from the annual service has needed no maintenance. The 1332cc engine is more than adequate for such a small car. The 3-speed automatic transmission is very good around town, but can be rather unpleasant in the 30-40mph range. It will cruise at 70mph, but sounds happiest in the 50-63mph range, above 63mph it sounds slightly over-revved. Typical fuel consumption is 33-38mpg. Leg room is limited, I am 5'11" and have the seat all the way back, which leaves no room for a rear passenger.
