What does this car say about you?

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Bigger than expected. Nicer outside than in - too many cheap interior plastics.

Would you buy this car again and why?
No way. Feels shoddy in terms of build quality. This is the first car I've ever had where I struggle to engage 1st gear.

What are you likely to buy next?
A mini.
