Faults & Injuries:

Punctured Turbo hose

Performance was lacking ever since we picked the car up – if you opened the window and put your foot down; all you could hear was what sounded like a hoover, with this great rush of air as the turbo kicked in.   This was fixed under warranty.


Missed the 16″ wheels we had with the last 1.4 but, at least you can’t see them from inside the car anyway.

The ESP wasn’t intrusive on a daily basis, but it did prove useful in the wet.   A slightly enthusiastic right turn at the crossroads led to the system trimming quite a tidy line for me!


What made the last car a pretty complete package is ever closer now. If you can get your hands on this engine – go for it.
