Bought on price, which considering the level of kit, was remarkable, as a run around for my wife. Reliability was very important hence buying new and not only has it not boken down, it has not given any problems. A major plus for a car so small and cheap is that it's a 5 door, which helps offset the smallness of the car. Downside is a jiggly nride and a tiny boot. All in all, an amazing car for the price.
