I have one of these and haven't had an issue.
One thing though, it is bloody thirsty both on oil and petrol. The city mode I avoid as much as possible. For me it is a little too slow to change when it needs and slamming your foot to the floor makes it go into this super rev mode and quite frankly made me a little uneasy. It's a lot smoother and I now enjoying driving just using the stick in the middle; odd times I use the steering wheel change but also I don't do that too often.
Regardless I have honestly not had a problem. I am very hands on with cars; spending a lot of time spinning spanners but with this all I have done is the usual maintenance stuff. The price seems a little steep to me. People may say I bought a 'banger' but I only paid £900 and she's a beauty, good nick and runner, lots of history etc. plus it's a 2002.
Don't know whether this helps. Feel free to ask anything.
