I think you will be very happy with it Craig. I've had mine 10months now its an 06 Rio with 24,000 miles and its still fun to drive. The only problem I have had was a water sensor on diesel filter.
All the best with it.
You should love it, its not a bad car at all. I would recommend getting Remote Central Locking fitted to it. Having just had to load an Eb bass into a picanto with no central locking i know it can be a bugger when your hands are full!!
RCL should only cost about 200 and your retailer can fit it before you collect.
