Overall reliability

floating suspension, 5 speed, 5 doors

Hydro elastic suspension made the wife travel sick at first, then one burst at the rear and the car was running on its bump stops until I managed to replace it, car tended to lock in 5th gear after a motorway drive and had to be forcibly knocked out, the aluminium cylinder head warped easily and had to come off twice for reskimming, both the 1500 and 1750 [had both] were poor tow cars despite having minimal rear overhang, glad to move on with my cars
