Good fun to drive hard.

Reliability

2 out of 5

Interior trim falls apart too easily. Cylinder head gasket blew at 18,000 miles. Faulty connection caused failure to start at 22,000 miles. Windscreen wiper mounting faulty. Electric window not seated correctly. Otherwise, it's OK!

Interior trim is pretty poor quality. Speaker cover, door handle and seat trim have all fallen off. Driver's seat catch needs constant adjustment.
