Overall reliability

Great economy. Well equipped. Smooth gearbox. Classy looks. Very reliable - Noisy engine at low speed. Small boot.

Longest car I have ever owned. Great engine and gearbox. Powerful and very economic. Ive done 70mpg on a run. Comfortable and well equipped. Body and interior finishes are ageing very well. Great ergonomics. Never had a major mechanical problem with it.

Only gripes are at low speed the engine is noisy by today's standards. Especially when cold. Steering a little heavy and the boot small.
