Type of dealer you bought from?

Did you buy this car new?

What price did you pay?

When did you buy the car?
May 2005

Did you get a good deal and why?
I think I got a pretty good deal,as I traded in an imported vehicle and got a tow-bar fitted at no extra cost.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
I needed something that would pull a 4 birth caravan and which was comfortable to drive.

What was the dealer like?
The dealer was good to negotiate with.

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
It's a fairly smooth drive and being an automatic,the gear changes take care of themselves.It takes a bit of time to build up a head of steam,so it's not for the boy racer!

What's it like to park?
It's a fairly long car,so takes a bit of skill to park,especially as there are no parking sensors on this age of model.

Living with it

4 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
In the nine years I've had it,apart from tyres,I've had to have a new starter motor,alternator and battery.

What's most practical about your car?
With the back seats down,no end of 'stuff' can be crammed into it.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
A proper spare wheel;so many cars nowadays don't have one!
