The GT JTDm is a gem, to start with it looks effing fantastic. It's a 2 door coupe with a hatchback, fold the rear seats and it's cavernous, it'll seat 5 and return 45mpg. The leather seats are the most comfortable I've ever sat in, and the engine is a peach.
Only Xenon headlights need the bumper dropping to change the sidelights, which do have a habit of blowing regularly. Replace them with LEDs, last much longer.
Does have it's well documented problems.
Heated seat switches
Crushed sills caused by incorrect jacking
Door mirrors not folding
But then *all* cars have their issues. With regular maintenance and fixing problems as they occur the GT is a pleasure to own. I'll have had mine for 8 years soon, it was 2 years old when I bought it and it has just gone through 150K miles.
But the very best thing is there isn't another one in the car park.
