I’ve had this car from new, since September 2005, in metallic black and with Suzuki alloy wheels. So far, I have been very pleased with it. For a first car, I can't complain - for town driving, it's faultless, but for runs over 60mph, there is a fair bit of over-revving, which is understandable for a 1.1-litre car. However, price-wise, which is this car's primary attribute, it is very reasonable, and has everything you would expect from a modern car - power steering, ABS, traction control, driver and front passenger airbags and front electric windows. I replaced the stereo and the two front speakers. Although the included entertainment package was satisfactory, I preferred a little more volume to my music. Another few positives are from a parking perspective - it is a very easy car to drive, with a fantastic turning circle and all controls logically positioned. This car is built very cheaply, but to be honest what can you expect for its price? The interior is basic but tidy. Having taken a full load in this car on a 200-mile stretch including long motorway use, I found it capable of handling this, but not excellent at it. What Car's review for this vehicle is far too negative, and is trying to compare it with a vehicle that you would, understandably, pay a lot more money for. With this vehicle, you certainly get a lot for your money.
