Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
It says that I like the finer things in life without shouting about it!

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Everyone says it's nice, neighbours think I've settled down! Little do they know! My friend said "that's a posh car you drive".

Would you buy this car again and why?
Definitely buy again, I'd just buy a later model. It's an under-estimated great car that does everything you want it to do. Always puts a smile on my face.

What are you likely to buy next?
I'm not! I'm hoping to keep this car for a very long time. If I win lottery I'd buy the latest model I could get.

Buying experience

5 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?
Independent

Did you buy this car new?
Used

What price did you pay?
£6,995

When did you buy the car?
April 2012

Did you get a good deal and why?
I traded in my 52-plate MINI Cooper for which they gave me £3,995, a very good price! So I ended up paying £3,000 cash.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
I wanted a good all round car that's relaxing to drive, comfy, spacious, can carry 4 passengers and very exciting to drive due to its powerful diesel engine.

What was the dealer like?
Buying my car from a dealer has always been worrying, what with all the stories about pushy salesmen and being sold dodgy motors. We didn't once feel pressured, in fact we were made to feel at home! "Take your time, if you need any help let me know" that was it, no following us around.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Its easy to park, rear parking sensors. It's quite a big car yet it's so easy to manoeuvre. Excellent on motorways, set cruise control at 75mph and the revs are just above 1,500. Doesn't lose speed when going uphills, it always puts a smile on your face.

What's it like to park?
With rear parking sensors that ain't too sensitive, I can easily get into spaces.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
The car is very pleasing to drive, power on tap. Very comfy too, soaks up bumps/potholes well. Had it for just over a year, took it for its 1st MOT and major service, needed new front spring & brakes, cost £433! Bargain.

What's most practical about your car?
Boot is huge, rear seats fold flat. Carries 4 passengers with ease. Rear parking sensors. Excellent fuel economy - 47 mpg.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Heated door mirrors! 10 speaker system! Lights on doors when they're open.
