What's it like to drive?
its nippy in first and second geat then takes ages to pick up for motorway speeds, not very good on fuel for size engine and size of car. slow up hills, quiet, the suspention is really hard which is annoying when you are listening to a cd.

very good really easy due to city mode and with the car being small

Have you had any problems with the car?
haha yes car come with loads of scratches and dents (keep asking me to go back in) come with a almost bald tyre (fixed) exhaust was corroded and started to blow and as i was driving back to dealer the exhaust fell off fixed it due to shouting at them (fixed) wheel made a squeaking noise (fixed) the airbag light came on and when it rains or you wash the car water leaks in and makes a swimming pool on parcel shelf. thats about it for time being expecting more problems

What's most practical about your car?
easy to park with city mode, big boot for size of the car

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
the sport body kit that comes with the active sport and the city mode
