The most atrocious reliability I have ever seen- worse than my 12 yr old car! Broke down on day 1 and continues to break down now been towed 4 times with several serious faults!

Service

1 out of 5

Atrocious! They don't care about their customers at all as far as I can see. Left me stranded without a car- I'm 24 and I wont buy another! So much for getting their drivers young and keeping them. Customer services head office were the worst of the lot!

Problems

Bodywork
Boot panel cracked from normal use, side panels rattling, clock came loose, several door handles and body trim fallen off

Engine
6 wks without car due to injection system, constantly 'hiccups' (loses engine power momentarily) engine light comes on- I'm told there's nothing wrong with it.

Gearbox
