Living with it

3 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
where to start? constant electrical glitches (warning lights and messages appear once and then never reappear), suspension stuck in highest position (felt like i was driving a 4x4), air con packed up (some sensor replaced), turbo failure (£1000 to replace and fit!) new clutch cost £700 fitted because it needed a dual-mass flywheel too! when things break, you need a big piggy bank!

What's most practical about your car?
loads of room and very comfortable.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
auto lights and wipers. every car should have them.
