What does this car say about you?
I'm old.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
They think I paid more than I actually did for it, which is nice.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Probably not, but I only got this car as a 'stop gap' between family saloons.

What are you likely to buy next?
Probably a BMW 3 Series or an Audi A4.

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
A lot better than I thought, excellent through the corners (especially at speed). Refined enough at 70mph and doesn't take too long to get there seeing as its only a 1.4.

What's it like to park?
Very easy to park.
