08-reg Petrol, Owner for 1 to 3 years

As an elderly widow it suits me very well indeed. It's neat, comfortable, easy to park and has proved very reliable. My son drove it down from the Isle of Man to South Devon for me when I moved here and he commented on how well it steamed down the M6 and M5 and that it was not tiring to drive.

Not had it too long, a few small problems with the exhaust bracket but seems reasonably reliable. Extremely cheap to run, also parts are chaeap and widely available.

It has been generally reliable but has had some issues recently, needing a new clutch for example. Very low cost to run.
