Summary

1 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
I'm naive for thinking I could get a good quality car for such a great price. It also says I don't know much about buying a good-quality car.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Everyone told us not to buy it...they were right.

Would you buy this car again and why?
NEVER - who would after spontaneously going up in flames in the middle of a busy road at 5pm rush hour on a Friday?

What are you likely to buy next?
Options include: Ford Galaxy, VW Touran, Chrysler Voyager, Seat Alhambra, Nissan Qashqai+2.

Driving it

3 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Jerky but we got used to it. A small engine like 1.6 meant that you push on the gas and it stalls before going anywhere, although the EGB was convenient yet it didn't make for a smooth drive.

What's it like to park?
No complaints.

Living with it

3 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
The motor caught on fire while I was driving it. I pulled over and the motor went up in flames. It melted everything under the hood, consequently, it was totaled.

What's most practical about your car?
Spacious and easy to convert seats into storage space.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
The windshield came farther up to allow additional visibility. I wish I could get that on other cars.
