What does this car say about you?
Safe driver.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Bit small, compact, nippy. Looks nice.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Never. Cheap build. Some annoying parts i.e no anti-glare tilt on rear view mirror and only access to passenger window is by reaching over. No second window button on driver's side. 4 seat and very little room in rear and the smallest boot I have ever seen. Full up with three carrier bags of food. Useless.

What are you likely to buy next?

Driving it

3 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Very easy to drive and copes with motorways as easily as round town. Rattles as you pull away from underneath. Need to change to third on hills as loses power very quickly.

What's it like to park?
As it's so small it's easy to park. Good turning circle.

Living with it

2 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Horn doesn't work. Petrol cap is difficult to open. Don't feel MPG is as good as indicated. Only 4 seats and very cramped in back. Wish I hadn't bought it. Car feels cheaply built and rattles all the time as you pull away. Not brilliant for less than two years old.

What's most practical about your car?
Cheap to tax.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
None. Very basic car. Most annoying features are no glare tilt on rear view mirror so often blinded at night by cars behind. Only one electric window button on drivers side so have to lean over to passenger door to operate passenger window. Very annoying.
