    My car

    I have the auto 'plus' version of this car (air con and electric windows), bought used at 2500 miles, and added 20,000 miles since then. The ride is bouncy, there's lots of engine noise on the motorway and I've already had to secure the lighter socket with gaffer tape. However it has happily taken me to London and Glasgow without anything going wrong, and I can use tiny parking spaces in city centres. Its 1 litre engine is surprisingly responsive, fun even, and it corners better than my previous Renault Megane. Other than the trim, I have had no reliability problems. Fuel economy on A roads is good (about 50 mpg), but drops to about 35 mpg on motorway journeys. I'm happy with the car overall. It seem good value for its low price, and I'd recommend it as a budget purchase if you don't spend too much time on motorways.
