Independent

Did you buy this car new?
Used

What price did you pay?
£2,000

When did you buy the car?
February 2010

Not particularly, the centre seat belt had broken - common problem apparently, but the dealer had push most of it underneath the seat. Replaced for £160

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
I liked its looks and as it is a saloon it had more head room in the back - very important for a 1.96m tall son!

Seemed ok

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Lovely. It is very comfortable and quite quiet, despite middle of the road tyres. The engine is not the most powerful but does not seem to have a narrow power band like turbo diesels usually have. Great for long distance driving.

What's it like to park?
Once used to how long it is, no problem.

Living with it

4 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
No. I have done 16000 miles since buying it.

What's most practical about your car?
The boot, it is huge and easy to access.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Despite it being a base model it has a lot of kit. I love the standard cruise control, love the auto wipers especially.
