Overall reliability

poor build quality with poor design and poor engine reliabilty

i purchased the car 13 months ago. Since that day i have spent nearly £700 on repairs. Windscreen, b***** rear calipers, and standard stuff like services. I do High milage and well its damned uncomfortable, perfect power performance for over taking but very un-economical with air-con on. Before the pump broke i was getting I was getting roughly 32 MPG. After it broke i was getting 12 MPG better off after the air-con pump ceised(42 MPG). new air con pump fitted after mucu expense. Oh and the head gasket has now blown. 13 hour job for a professional!!! i however cannot afford the $1000 give or take £100 either side to repair. I shall do it myself. Small snag being that you have to drop the engine out from underneath the car. Bit tricky when you dont have much space or the proper tools to do the job. SCRAP is more appropriate!!!!!!! My car has only done 97.500 miles. BUYERS beware!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! buy a decent car!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
