I didn't find them too bad, but clearly the order volume speaks for itself - either a bad product or poor value for money.


They are always a good temperature, I'll give them that, but other than that they're pretty poor from a passenger point of view. They're narrow/cramped, uncomfortable and have more rattles than a baby's cot. It is a waste of time advertising the chargers, because they're rarely switched on. The poor design requiring a manual switch on each time the vehicle is started up, usually results in the drivers forgetting to switch them on. 

The E200MMCs that Stagecoach are running in Newcastle are essentially the same bus, but they're worlds apart in terms of build quality and ride quality IMO.

Good temperature? They have no insulation. The arriva ones with no heating are freezing in winter and boiling in summer and the Prince bishops onwards gne ones are always hot

Aye. I'm never disappointed in an omnicity, so long as there's no dual carriageway embarrassment involved.
