Nice big boot for size of car. Easy to collapse the seats down for carting around larger stuff too.

My mate borrowed it for a weeks mountain biking is Scotland and was really suprised. He thought it was great and he normally drives a Saab. Most people quite like it I think...

Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes, but I always have a different car.

What are you likely to buy next?
A diesel with cruise control and big enough for 3 kids!

Driving it

4 out of 5

Living with it

4 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
One the whole, its been very good. No mechanically issues, but when I picked the car up the main beam headlights didn't work. Took it back and it took the dealer 10 days to rectify, dash out, the lot! And all it was, was a relay. I'd have thought that should have been one of the first things you'd check?!?!

What's most practical about your car?
Nice big boot for size of car. Easy to collapse the seats down for carting around larger stuff too.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Cruise control, a must have on every car I get from now. Also MP3 stereo.
