What does this car say about you?

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Nice looking motor.

Would you buy this car again and why?
No i would not buy this car again and so far wish i hadn't purely for the fuel economy. I do a lot of motorway driving and this is costing me so much more in fuel than i was promised.

What are you likely to buy next?
Something comfortable, reliable and with excellent fuel economy reviews.

Driving it

What's it like to drive?
It goes well, has the power to overtake when you need it. If you put your foot down though, watch the fuel gauge drop.

What's it like to park?
With park assist..... brilliant. Parking manually.... ok as long as you don't have to turn the steering wheel to a full lock. If you do..... pitiful. A bus could turn better.

Living with it

Have you had any problems with the car?
The car has been back to the dealer a few times. It had a lack of power and kangarooing in first and second gears. Apparently this is a common fault. The other (which is an ongoing problem) is the fuel consumption which i am really disappointed with. I can only achieve 39-41 mpg (less than a petrol model). It doesn't seem to matter how i drive the car, that's the best i get. I do a lot of motorway driving and bought the car for the fuel economy.

What's most practical about your car?

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
I like the park assist and hill assist.
