I had one as a loan car for a couple of weeks when my Senator was in for some repair work after some prat attempted a break in and only managed body damage and cutting all the alarm wires. The loaner was a bodyshop special - previously repaired. Probably rarely serviced. If ever.
At the time I was doing a weekly commute to South Wales. 132 miles and usually not any sort of peak traffic time. Dual carriage or Motorway nearly all the way.
The fastest return trip I ever managed was in that Ka. No Idea why that should be - it's handling was fun enough but top speed was nothing special according to the clock. I was almost (but not quite) sorry to hand it back (once they had failed to get the wiring sorted and simply fitted an after market alarm to the Senator).
