What does this car say about you?
Its my first car and I am on a budget. That I care more about reliability than a badge!

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Family love it!! Friends hate it because of the lack of room but they also love it because they don't need to get the bus!

Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes. Cheap, Reliable and very fun! Also very easy to mod!

What are you likely to buy next?
Wanted something with a little more power so my next car will most probably be a 1.4 Volkswagen Polo.

Driving it

What's it like to drive?
Fantastic! Doesn't feel underpowered and holds the road brilliantly! Great in snow/ice! Comfortably cruises along the motorway at 70+mph.

What's it like to park?
A doddle! Large windows, thin pillars and a very tight turning circle all make it a dream to park!

Not many gadgets but it has to be headlight motor (moves headlights up and down).
