Buying experience

4 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?
Independent

Did you buy this car new?
Used

What price did you pay?
£4,500

When did you buy the car?
August 2015

Did you get a good deal and why?
Yes I got a good deal, as the car had less than average miles for the year and the garage removed some marks from the cars body, changed its tyres and give me a full years MOT.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
I was looking for reliability.

What was the dealer like?
Very pleasant, treated me more like a person and less like a notch towards his monthly quota.

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
It's nice to drive, good seating position and visibility. the diesel engine is a little noisy on acceleration when the engine is cold, there is noticeable road noise with this car but I'm putting that down to cheap tyres. In the mid 60's for mpg which is great so can't complain.

What's it like to park?
Be careful of the back bumper when reverse parking this car, it sticks out further than you think but it has a good turning circle and the side mirrors provide ideal visibility so an easy car to park overall.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
So far so good, I've travelled the length of the country in the car and it has skipped a beat. long may it continue.

What's most practical about your car?
Having the 5 doors and the 2 stage boot compartment.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
The bluetooth hands free and the cruise control, the cabin heats up quickly too, when the engine is cold and the blower is turned on, the engine automatically revs a little higher and normal idle and you begin to feel warm air within 2 minutes of the initial start up, ideal!
