Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Very lively for a diesel, cruises well on the motorway, cornering is not as good as people say.

What's it like to park?
Being a box shape makes it quite easy to park but the visibility at the rear corners can make it a bit awkward sometimes, the mirrors could do with being a bit larger.

Have you had any problems with the car?
Annoying engine management light keeps coming on and going into limp home mode, no one can find what's causing it. Does it mainly during the winter months. Started when the car was only 2yrs. old and still doing it now. Plastic thermostat housing warped and started leaking at 30,000 miles (4 yrs) new one fitted.

Luggage area. High seats, bought the car because of the wife's bad back.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Electric heated screen, Rain sensing wipers, Privacy glass.
