3 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
Well, it use to say that I was a learner driver but am now on pass+ (yay) so not a lot at all since L plates are no longer needed

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Not the best car around, but it did the job

Would you buy this car again and why?
Nah, would rather get something new as life is too short to keep driving the same car forever

What are you likely to buy next?
Not sure, had a Corsa which was a waste of time so not another one of those

3 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Gutless engine, the engine feels like another gear would really help it & it never feels entirely stable, have to rev the life out of it in order to overtake safely on duel carriageways. If it was my car then I wouldn't look forward to overtaking

What's it like to park?
Easy really, although it's hard work without power steering

Living with it

3 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Not to my knowledge

What's most practical about your car?
It has 5 doors & is faster than the bus

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
The airbag? It's not the most generously specced car around
