Summary

4 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
Nothing, it doesn't speak.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Who really cares? I'm not egotistical and I couldn't give a jot what other peoples opinions of me are based on the type of car I drive. Let those who drive 'symbol' cars glow in their misguided belief that others look up to them because of the car they drive LOL...

Would you buy this car again and why?
I've had 3 before this one, but they stopped making them in 2007, so probably not.

What are you likely to buy next?
Something equally utilitarian and cheap to run.

Driving it

3 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Noisy, more rattles than a 1960's football match, but all of this adds to it's utilitarian charm. Fairly good on fuel, but this has the GM engine rather than the Suzuki, which is a much better unit.

What's it like to park?
Dead easy, with it's huge electric mirrors, power steering and tiny footprint.

Living with it

4 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Not yet and too early to say, but having owned 3 of them before, all of which have been bomb-proof reliability wise, I don't anticipate any problems.

What's most practical about your car?
Height for getting in or out, the huge load area if the rear seats are folded.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Space.
