Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
not a B road blaster as steering is vague and lazy but get it on a nice A road or motorway and its a joy a great GT cruiser, pulls strongly in all the gears although i wish i had got the automatic instead.

What's it like to park?
steering lock is good and its ok round town for a large car but i find it difficult to reverse park because its difficult to see the back end through rear mirror ,a quick head out through out the window solves this though
