Fantastic Workhorse

Bought at a year old with 11k, having never had a car before beyond 80000 miles which still gives confidence it will get you home, we are now on 140000! Never failed to start and the only parts to fail have been one coil spring, a temperature sender wire, and the Door Winder motor/control unit on the drivers side. The rest have been service items. Just done a 700 mile round trip with full load at 55mpg, really what more can you ask for? I would buy another tomorrow if still made....much more reliable than the last 2 BMW's owned probably as much less complex!
