Hello, my white 5 door high up is here. I have had it since Tuesday afternoon. I haven't gone too far in it so far but I have a day off today so up going for a bit of a longer drive. I am loving it. It is way more comfortable than my twingo GT that I traded in for it. The interior is so much nicer and spacious. I've not played around with the maps and more yet but I have realised I need a new phone that has blue tooth! I'm still rocking an early 2000s nokia. I have had trouble with the fuel filler cap. I think I have got the hang of it now but locking and unlocking of it confused me. I have noticed that the engine has a rattling sound to it that makes it sound a bit like a van but after reading previous posts on here I'm not too worried. Apparently it will fade as it gets a few more miles on it + it may just be how that engine sounds. Is everyone in agreement with that?

I noticed the noise when cruising in 5th at about 35mph. Done 1200 miles now, it seems to be a bit quieter now.

The rattle noise is like I have seen it described before like a chain on a bike. I can hear through all the gears really . Is that just the sound these cars make? Edited by: Ashleytp

I've never noticed any rattles just the unusual diesel type throaty noise. It sounds a bit like a Mk 1 escort I once had in tbe 80's with a leaky manifold.

I've not noticed any strange engine noises and I do listen closely as a result of all the postings about it. But what did strike me was how loud the wind noise is at 70mph.
