Summary

4 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
I want fun and don't care about brand prestige.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
"It looks like a shoe".

Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes. It's a very honest car. It's fun and useable every day, but lacks comfort. If you can live with this, it will be a great ownership experience. If you can't, get something else.

What are you likely to buy next?
Replaced by a DSport DS3 (sadly...).

Buying experience

4 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?
Didn't buy from a dealer

Did you buy this car new?
Used

What price did you pay?
£7,100

When did you buy the car?
November 2012

Did you get a good deal and why?
Yes. These cars are not sought after and I managed to get a good deal as I had the money available immediately.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
Wanted a fun daily driver that wouldn't cost too much.

What was the dealer like?
N/A

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
It's a very fun warm / hot hatch. The chassis is fantastic, responsive, fun, chuckable at will but it will never try to kill you. However, it's not a very good daily driver. The suspensions are very firm, there not a lot of sound deadening and the engine spins at 4300 revs at 80mph, it only sips premium, and the seats aren't very comfortable. If you can live with this, however, it gets around 40mpg, and is reliable and docile around town.

What's it like to park?
Easy! Watch out for the rims though.

Living with it

3 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Nope. The only annoyance were the windows which rattled quite a bit when open.

What's most practical about your car?
You can stop worrying about reliability. This car will simply never let you down.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
None really. Keyless isn't very useful. And the stereo isn't very good.
