Driving it

2 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Not a bad drive, but its small size is a nightmare when you are driving on the lumpy british roads, you start to feel every single pot hole and lump in the road, which isnt good, id imagine these cars go through many suspension kits in their lifetime.

What's it like to park?
Probably the easiest car to swing into a parking space, however rear visability is obstructed by the rear headrests.

Living with it

Have you had any problems with the car?
Entire top end of the engine started to get tappety after just 200 miles out of the forecourt. Auto gearbox not as responsive as it should have been, sometimes wouldnt drop gear almost like it was going to stall.

Its size makes it almost unnoticeable on the road.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Auto Gearbox when it works properly.
