What's it like to drive?
It's fine for most usage, but don't try to climb hills with any load on board. Acceleration is adequate, but it's not really a motorway car.

Simple, it's small with good visibility.

Have you had any problems with the car?
The front discs needed replacement at 75,000 miles, which I've never had before. I suppose it is one of the cheapest cars on the road.

No accessories - remote locking perhaps!
