Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
Practical and a little fun.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
They like it. A colleague is buying this for his daughter as he knows how reliable it is and that it has been well looked after.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes I have enjoyed owning this car. 6 years with no problems and never failed an MOT.

What are you likely to buy next?
Nisan Juke Tekna! It's on order. Keyless entry was a must and this is why I have gone for the Tekna. Just hope it serves me as well as the Swift.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Fantastic to drive. I once drove it from the lakes to Newcastle and thoroughly enjoyed the drive. It likes to be thrown about and is responsive. On motorway driving it feels like it needs a sixth gear.

What's it like to park?
Easy to park. No blind spots and all round the car is visible.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
The suspension bushes have been replaced twice and shock absorbers but maybe that's due to how I drive!

What's most practical about your car?
It's nippy and easy to park.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Keyless entry negates the feeling around in handbag for keys.
