Not as cheap as they used to be, but that's progress.

£160 for a service plus courtesy car, good value. Cost of additional specialsit oil at £11.00 per litre a bit pricey.

Good, solid car, tows a caravan superbly.

Can cruise at 70mph and still get 53mpg as an average. Drive enthusuastically and achieve 50mpg no problem.

Apart from minor problem with the sump plug, very good over 20,000 miles in a year.
