Driving it

1 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Not good as it broke down within 6 months... When the steering fails at 60mph on a busy duel carriageway and you have a baby in the rear... you imagine and prepare for the worst and pray.

What's it like to park?
Good however can not park it as, its sat at a Honda garage waiting for the parts... I am told there are on back order and will have to wait nearly a month.

Have you had any problems with the car?
YES - 6 weeks into owning my car.... Complete electronic failure on the motorway. Steering failure, traction control failure. Complete loss of control traveling at 60mph. AA had to come out and pick up car and return it to dealership. This car has risked the my life and my 8 month old son. I complained to Honda Customer Care and they don't care at all. It has not been an enjoyable experience and certainly wouldn't recommended the buying of this car.

Space (Not reliability or customer care as they state).

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Good spec and I like the auto main beams. The Robust Pack The Design Pack.
