Living with it

1 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Boot lid handle come to pieces several times. Crappy quality. Rear window motor failed, went up and down like a fiddlers elbow whenever it wanted to. EGS is absolutely terrible. Worst drive ever. Quite dangerous at times when wanting to pull away quickly at a junction. Put your foot down, and there's often a 3-4 second delay. Wheel bearings on the way out at 39k!!

What's most practical about your car?
Big boot, when the handle lets you in.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Erm....i'll find something that works first! Oh yeah.....electric handbrake, coz that works after the recall.
