So whats the real story
Newbie here. We have been looking for a new car for a while with little enthusiasm until by chance we spotted a 147 sport on a forecourt and were smitten. After a test drive I knew the wheel didn't adjust far enough for me but I still wanted it, the window buttons were too far back and awkward to reach but I still wanted it, no cruise control, no options, and no storage (is the glove box some sort of in joke? normal lid, opens to reveal enough storage for perhaps a box of matches) I still want one. So now I get to the point of me registering and posting, the only ncap rating is for 2001 and it was awarded 3 stars, has the model been updated since then to improve safety and the golden question, what are they really like to live with, their reputation suggests I would be mad to even consider one, the posts on this forum suggest the reputation is based on the views of people who have never owned one.
