Had this car for a year. 1.4i petrol. 2008 'Exclusive' model. Getting 35mpg on average; that works out at 18 pence a mile. I expected better. The high gearing means too much time in the lower gears while city driving; too little power below 1500 rpm. The car is sturdy, wide tyres, a nice driving position; but the side mirrors are poor. Can you get convex instead of flat glass.? Also had trouble with the washer motor, wonder if it is common to have electrical faults on this model. I fixed it by twisting the pins slightly to get a better connection at the pump. That's the post. Hope you find it interesting.
