Overall reliability

Needs to be fed lots money far too frequently.

While its running its fine. 35-47mpg. Not as comfy a ride as you might be led to believe.

BUT.......it needs lots of repairs and they are expensive.

Lots of minor stuff like bulhead leaks, worn bushes, park solenoid, seatbelt, aircon leaks.

Rebuilt the front suspension after 7 years, 70k miles. That cost £3K.

After 9 years and 100,000 miles the power steering rack died.

It would cost more than it was worth to repair it, so I used it as scrappage for a KIA.
