Re: Should I buy a Modus???

I owned a 54-plate 1.4 - and it was a nightmare.
Within the space of 15 months or so, we had:

- a non-start in the drive...AA came out and fiddled with it, can't remember what the actual diagnosis was.

- the rear right door latch inexplicably stopped working...resulting in needing to lash the door closed, and off back to Arnold Clark.

- the final straw was getting back to a flat tyre after a fortnight holiday....couldn't get the spare out to save my life! (bloodied knuckles etc)...even the AA mechanic couldn't! of those twist and turn me mechanisms.. spent 30 minutes on it, eventually got it out.

Found it to be short of breath had to keep your foot down to keep up a decent bit of speed.
We always go 'argh!' when we see one..

Regards & Good luck..
