Overall reliability

the ideal first car

I bought this car for my wife when she passed her test. I paid £1200 for it with 47k on the clock and the overall condition is consistent with the age of the vehicle. The car is of course not powerful but what it lacks in bhp it makes up for in cheap insurance, low mpg and low road tax. I will sum the good and bad poits below:

Pros:
good mpg
easy to drive and park
ideal car for town driving
tight turning circle
excellent all round visibility
good reliability
four relatively small adults can sit in comfort (it is not a five seater vehicle despite having five seatbelts)
loads of cubby holes to store things
Despite the age of the vehicle, there is no sign of rust even on the underside. This is true when this is written.


Cons:
excessive body roll
difficult to switch to third gear
remote key desintegate with normal usage very quickly (this is why it comes with two remote keys)
road and wind noises (not really a problem though)
premature radio lcd screen failure
not the most comfortable car
the car takes a very long time to warm up from cold.
