"punto hgt"

very quick , has all mod cons,air con, satnav, city button,trip computer ect.
I have owned one for over year and no problems to date (touch wood)
I feel sometimes it could do with a sixth gear to make it really special but its still a blast to drive.
I feel the driving position is very adaptable with adjusting lumber support, height adjustment to seat and stearing colum.
The car in general handles very well due to the hardened suspension but this can also meen you can feel every little bump in the road.
The only down side is I feel the steering can be a bit light and some bigger brake disc would go along way ( i don't think they thought about that when they put a meaty engine in a small car)
As a hgt owner i would not let anyone tell me anything less than this is SUCH a fun car to drive and if your thinking about getting one you will have fun.
