Buying experience

Type of dealer you bought from?

Did you buy this car new?

What price did you pay?

When did you buy the car?
October 2007

Did you get a good deal and why?
Well priced for the year and overall condition of the car, however will have to spend more as needs servicing, boot doesn't open, seales above doors becoming detached so also need fixing, strange noise around front wheel on drivers side needs investigating...

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
Really liked its looks, nice driving position, cheap to buy.

What was the dealer like?
The worst customer service I have ever experienced, this man has actually made me cry he was so rude and offencive and I was only asking him to drop the price a bit as he didn't service the car and service notice was flashing on dashboard. I travelled nr70 miles to buy this car and he sounded genuine on the phone..Richard Tucker is a con!He operates his business from his house in little village called Aust nr Chepstow. Do not do any business with this man if you want a quality customer service!

Have you had any problems with the car?
As said above boot doesn't open, strange noise creaks and rubbing sound on driver's side around the wheel or engine, not sure, seals above doors need fixing. But its a great little car overall and it does put a smile on my face when I drive it!

What's most practical about your car?
Cheap to run, great to park in town.

Lovely comfy seats, very stylish dash with red glow, cd..and nothing else matters!
