Bit of a flat spot below 3000 rpm, but above that it flies.

Reliability

2 out of 5

Now and again it takes 2-3 times to start it up. Not sure why.

4 out of 5

I have had somebody try and steal the car, they didn't drive the car away. But pinched the radio, without the panel.

Service

1 out of 5

I went to one dealer in Nottingham and found them not wishing to help as soon as I told them I bought the car used. I then went to another dealer just outside Notts and they couldn't do enough to help.
