Is there any special reason why you bought this car?

Driving it

2 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Easy, comfortable, relaxing. The kick down is a strange experience when accelerating hard in auto mode but it doesn't pretend to be a sports car so perhaps I should stop doing that! In retrospect the kickdown isn't strange its just DANGEROUS, you accelerate from a near standstill and there is a delay where nothing happens, you just roll forward into traffic

What's it like to park?
No problem. The rear sensors make life easier, visibility is generally good and the rear view mirrors are large

Living with it

Have you had any problems with the car?
The windscreen washer fuse blew in the cold winter weather. I understand this is a common fault due to the position of the fuse box. 2yrs in to the owner experience and I've had a rain-in from the drivers door, a leak from behind the dashboard into the footwell and tomorrow its going in to deal with a complete loss of ventilation and air conditioning

What's most practical about your car?
the seat configuration, the space, the light, three individual rear seats

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
The cool box
