Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
It's heavy and sluggish, but I have done some miles in her and I have always enjoyed driving her. My new 307, which is better in every respect on paper just isn't as good a drive.

What's it like to park?
Nice turning circle. Piece of cake to park.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
I have had the car from 40,000 to 125,000 (I'm now selling it) and all that has gone wrong is a brake calliper and the air con unit. It's a work horse.

What's most practical about your car?
Big old boot.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Errrrr, the air con? It's got no gadgets!
