Buying experience

2 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?
Independent

Did you buy this car new?
Used

What price did you pay?
£3,869

When did you buy the car?
May 2013

Did you get a good deal and why?
I guess it was a good deal, reasonable part exchange price for my old car.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
I wanted a diesel as the millage I was doing increased and a petrol just wasn't cutting it.

What was the dealer like?
Problematic as alot of used car dealers are, they don't like people who know their rights when purchasing a second hand car. Problems were resolved eventually though.

Driving it

3 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Steering is very sketchy, very firm ride which made the interior rattle going over pebbles! Motorway driving wasn't too bad, gave good MPG on a long trip but nothing near more modern diesels.

What's it like to park?
Horrible, the turning circule is woeful and you need a field next to the car beside you as the doors as so long you risk smacking them if any closer.

Living with it

3 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Yep: Directional and auto level headlights (both sensors needed replacing) Turbo, the actuator failed under 70,000 miles! Very expensive fix Clutch and Dredded dual mass flywheel, failed under 80,00 which I believe is average Parking sensors CD Autochanger.

What's most practical about your car?
The boot space isn't too bad with the seats down, can fit a fair few boxes etc in it.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Didn't have one really, if I had to choose auto headlights/wipers.
