Decent little run about

Good points:
Decent fuel economy, especially on longer runs
Small enough to park anywhere
Nice dash layout
Good adjustment in driver's seating
A decent sized dog ( eg Labrador sized) actually fits in the boot

Bad points.
The gear box is vague to say the least
You feel every speed hump
Getting up to speed on the motorway is a bit tedious.. it is not fast off the mark (but keeps up nicely once up to speed)
If the front passenger has long legs.. don't put anyone in the back unless they are a child or limbless.. it's a squash!

Had the car for nearly 18m now. I had the cambelt changed just after purchase and it has run without a hitch, no horrible surprises and in fact has been a very decent little car for commuting. Cheap to run, cheap to ensure and quite pleasant to drive.
