Hi Stephen,


At the time, they were very reliable and solidly built, but I’d be slightly wary now, especially if it’s a automobile with patchy service history. The diesel models develop problems with both the injection system and the air mass sensor, while the 1.6 petrol was underpowered and consequently has to strain to push the automobile around, leading to excessive wear and tear (especially to the front driveshafts).

The good news is that there aren’t too many fiddly electronic system to go wrong, but check the automobile over very automobileefully and if there are too many holes in the service record, walk away.
