Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Better that expected. A few reviews say the steering is light but its not that light. Ive driven a corsa 2008 which is much much lighter. Has good feel to steering and it provides a good amount of feedback. Nippy little car. Others say poor on motorway. I would also disagree. It has plenty of power to overtake, not too noisy, if they say its snaking they need to fix the tracking then its perfectly fine. No problems around the hills of the lake district when i was driving it. My best advice. Look after the car and you will see its a good car for the price.

What's it like to park?
Easy. anyone who claims to struggle needs to learn to drive.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Nothing very reliable little car if you look after it i.e check oil tyre pressures service regularly etc.

What's most practical about your car?
Surprisingly large. I live in university and can easily fit everything in the car in one trip when taking my things too and from uni at the end of each year.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Doesn't have too much but not exactly nothing but the radio as everyone listens to one.
