Living with it

3 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
The head gasket needed replaced at 3 years old/25,000 miles, despite the car being serviced at main dealers according to the correct service intervals. The car broke down three days after I bought it due to a fault with the fuse box. The key for the car has disintegrated twice and needed to be replaced. There have been numerous other problems with the interior buttons/switches.

What's most practical about your car?
Large boot for a car of this style.
