Driving it

3 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Good fun for what it is, it grips the road well, although that might be down to the Uniroyal tyres. The power delivery is alright, especially after the recent service with new spark plugs. It has enough power to overtake reasonably swiftly but it's nothing special.

What's it like to park?
Visibility is good with the large side windows, but no park sensors unlike most modern cars.

The rear windscreen wiper has stopped working, but everything else is fine.

What's most practical about your car?
The large boot.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
The car doesn't really have any gadgets, it's basic.
