What does this car say about you?
It's a very cool young family car but also would be ok for any generation.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
They all think its a really nice and really smart Car.

Would you buy this car again and why?
No I would go for the ST, poor fuel means I may as well at least have the performance to match.

What are you likely to buy next?
I may buy an ST but I am likely to look at the VAG group again as their car economy more matches reality.

Living with it

2 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
The fuel economy is very poor, I do a mix of motorway and town and I drive very economically as proven in other cars and I cannot get this car over 31mpg unless I literally just do motorway driving and then it's about 35mpg. Frankly shocking compared to the claimed 47mpg and me expecting around 40mpg. Ford will diagnose it with a computer but if this returns a clear result I have to pay... This is a known issue on owners forums.

What's most practical about your car?
It has acres of space everywhere!

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Sat nav built in and hill start are both very handy.
