Overall reliability

looks great but build quality leaves something to be desired.

Since new have had 3 new sets of wheels because of poor quality (peeling).
Rear seat belts locking up rectified (not)! still the same. not nice if you're sitting in the back.
Failed first MOT!
Already on second set of tyres and only done 30,000 miles!
Alternator packed up last month. Cost of replacement and fitting a staggering £700.

The car is still a 'head turner' which is why my husband refuses to sell it but I am quite disgusted with the build quality. Yes, I know at £30,000 it was, some might say, quite cheap for the style of motor, but this is showing its ugly side now.
Depreciation is high too. I think its only worth about £12k now! Thats £18k lost over 4 years.
