3 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
That im old, dont care for a good driving car and i like spacious cars with very little in the way of image. Which could not be more untrue! Time for a change before i turn grey in my early 20s!

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
They think its very comfortable and spacious, serious value for money and has lots of kit. However they say its an old mans car.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Its a great car, does everything you would expect from a large car, however its not a car for someone who likes a car which handles, so for that reason NO.

What are you likely to buy next?
Something with a younger image, handles well and is fun to drive and live with.

Driving it

What's it like to drive?
Very nice car for motorway driving, very refined, comfortable, relaxed and quite economical for its size. However it doesnt like country roads too much, suspension too floaty, no feedback and it feels clumsy. All in, quite a numb drive but the perfect motorway mile muncher.

What's it like to park?
Its quite large, you cant see where the front or the rear of the car ends. But you soon get used to its size and i find it a doddle now, very easy.

Living with it

Have you had any problems with the car?
Two front drop links needed to be replaced. Slight oil leak from rocker cover.

What's most practical about your car?
Huge boot and loads of interior space.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Cruise Control, very nice opiton. Dual zone climate, again nice to have.
