Summary

Yes but not this model, I would opt for the 2 litre diesel with the manual gearbox.

What are you likely to buy next?
Normal family car, as don't need the extra space now.

Franchised

Used

£8,000

When did you buy the car?
December 2010

Did you get a good deal and why?

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
Best looking 7 seater.

What was the dealer like?
Unfortunately a normal used car salesman, but since I knew I could walk away and but elsewhere easily I didn't feel under any pressure to buy.

Driving it

2 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Horrible..... 1.6hdi is very underpowered and the EGS gearbox is jerky. But when on the motorway it cruises well and very comfortable.

What's it like to park?
Easy and there is so much glass you can see everything.

In the 1st year of ownership the air suspension had to be sorted 3 times, fortunately this was all covered under the warranty. I think every part was replaced. since then no issues at all.

The size and flexibility of the 7 seats, the back 5 fold flat and it gives you van like space. very handy.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Sun blinds in the doors, brilliant in the summer.
