I has one of these as my previous car. It's great value for money, very reliable, not too heavy on fuel, comfortable interior and very spacious boot and back seats. General service isn't expensive either, most I spent was on brakes and pads but that's across most cars now.

In terms of the bad side.. The clutch is finicky on the manual and mine had some intermittent rattles.

Other than that, for a car with the spec it had (cruise control, sun roof, leather, climate control and PDC) and the decent motor, its a great car.

If you like working on your cars your self, it has ample space around the engine to access pretty much everything.

What is the year model?

My current daily drive is a Cerato. It has not skipped a beat other than the starter motor that has it's ups and downs lately.

The car has also been solid but I am starting to notice some small rattles here and there which to me suggests they might not age as well.

Would higly recomend it as mentioned the maintenance is not bad at all and reliability in my experience has been great.

Some people don't ride because they want to live. I ride because I want to live a little more...
