great little car
Added: 2nd of February 2020
I inherited this car which has been in the family since new and no problems at all in 8 years. It has the little 3 cylinder engine which is fantastically economical - best I've ever owned, arguably much better than the 1200 for that reason, but it does need to be revved if any power needed over and above normal nippy driving. On long hills can run out of oomph but then I think about how economical it is. We quite often drive Cornwall (St Ives) to London or Brighton and its so cheap - around £30 one way. I drove Bristol to Cornwall the other day with four adults and it was fine: cruises at 70 which is all I want to do. Running up to 80 is fine too but probably not with 4. Three of our kids have learnt to drive in this car with another coming through. The high seat and ease of access is brilliant: really suits tall (I'm 6ft) occupants and if back issues etc its great. Seats fold and its been well abused on skip runs. What would i change? Nothing at all. OK, maybe decent cup holders, an aux input and maybe a phone / bluetooth connection: all first world problems when economy and frugality are the order of the day. Highly rated.
