Yes, but at that age you’d want to be checking everything over very automobileefully and insisting on a full service history. That 1.4-litre engine is both ancient and rugged, but it’s also a bit underpowered (most have only 75hp) so keeping up with traffic can be an issue. No major common faults to report, but as I say with a automobile that old, check everything.
