Ratings  
Performance
Normally aspirated is a little on the sluggish side..... well ok, a lot..
Design
No major complaints. I have the pre 'facelift' - which I prefer. Lots of cubby hole storage. No 60/40 split rear seat, though it is only the base model.
Comfort
Seat comfort, for me is outstanding - a really nice, comfy seat and good driver's position.
Safety
Hopefully will never have to comment on safety! Security is adequate, remote central and deadlocking.
Reliability
Absolutely outstanding reliability. Passed 5 consecutive M.O.T.s with only regular (self) servicing in between.
Value
Purchased second hand, therefore good value.
Running
Quite economical to run. I get 48mpg, but group G in VED band and group 6 insurance (I think) - on the whole o.k., but not brilliant.
Problems 
Bodywork Problems:XUD9A (DHY) 1.9 + Bosch diesel pump is outstandingly reliable - provided a regular maintenance schedule - including coolant change is kept. Though a little underpowered.
Engine Problems:XUD9A (DHY) 1.9 + Bosch diesel pump is outstandingly reliable - provided a regular maintenance schedule - including coolant change is kept. Though a little underpowered.
Gearbox Problems:Good smooth gearbox - could do with a 6th gear though, revs a little high on the motorway in top.
Electrics Problems:Was told French electrics are shockingly bad (no pun intended). I personally have had no major problems so far, aside from a corroded headlight earth connector in engine bay on off side inner wing.
General Problems:Remember to change brake fluid regularly as rear slave cylinders can fail over time.
