fun little car but like the ka in this age bracket  it may have rust . give it a really good look over and take on a good run over speed bumps & do a stop start on a hill to make sure the clutch is ok.

if you do get it hope your wife enjoys it.  or perhaps look at the pug 206cc

One thing to watch for is the car tax is it is very high for a small car. It is in a higher tax bracket than a Fiesta ST150 with its 2 litre engine.

MPG is quite high and it's fragile.  You need to know how to open and close the roof correctly.  The cold air blower can fail needing a new valve.  Springs are weak and the boot light switch can fail draining the battery.

 

At this age my advice would be to have one as a casual car that you can garage and be prepared to pamper.   I would not recommend it as an everyday car to drive and forget.

 

We had great fun with ours but in the end it had to go because it was demanding too much attention.    It's a bit of a diva  :)
