We are pensioners and rely on our car for shopping visiting family our car has roughly 35000 miles on the clock and we have had a problem with the accelerator sticking before which turned out to be a sensor problem and we have the same recurring problem.

This wonderful little package is a joy to drive and makes my 150 mile round trip commute a real pleasure. We bought the car through a well known car supermarket and in mho it represents terrific value as we still have more than 3 years manufacturers warranty. The car is one of a family fleet of 5 ( all very different vehicles ) and despite my covering 4k miles in 2 months I still find it a joy to drive......I am afraid I cannot agree with some other comments about the car not being suitable for long distance or motorway drives. We recently drove a 10 hour round trip over a weekend and even with 2 teenagers( tall ) in the back the trip was not arduous.....great little car with superb overtaking power band.

The EDC auto gearbox is amazing for performance, but not easy to override while in 'Auto'. The car leaves others standing . Used mainly as a shopping trolley, but o.k. for motorway runs ,but as a tall, light car tends to wander a bit with side winds. On longer runs 55mpg is a norm. Bit difficult to keep an eye on engine oil level as means taking out the boot floor. Seats fold easily though so can take quite a reasonable load

No problems to date (touch wood)

Amazing for 900 cc

For a city car, it's ideal, being loads of space inside, very economical, comfy and attractive both outside and in. My wife loves it, as easy access, and high sitting position. Fold down back seat allows access for grandchild's buggy. Can be expensive to buy new but great deals on cars up to year old.

Left outside and starts first time and runs like a dream

For around town ideal, for out and about, better upgrade to the Turbo TCE, as slow pick up.
Running Cost

5 out of 5

No road tax, low insurance, no service costs, low monthly payments, high mpg, running costs are excellent.
