Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
I'm green! Pity the emissions couldn't have been reduced to under 100 g/km though.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
They all like it. Nice shape, quiet, economical. They know how impressed we are with it.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Certainly would.

What are you likely to buy next?
Who knows? We had our last car (an Alhambra TDi when the family were young) and kept that for eleven years. Hope this one lasts as well!

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Really nice to drive. Super gearchange which is necessary since with such a small engine the gears have to be used a lot. Drop a gear or two and it sails up hills with no excessive engine noise - the engine revs freely. Clings to the road like a leech on twisting country roads and I have no complaints with motorway driving, nor in town (after all, it is classed as a city car).

What's it like to park?
Rear window a bit small, but no great problem with such a tiny car.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Hose to rear washer was not connected so water came into the car. Quickly and easily fixed by dealer.

What's most practical about your car?
Small size. Easy to handle and park.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
In this summer, the air-conditioning!
