Have you had any problems with the car?
ABS sensor started to flash, required an electrician to find which side then someone to change it. Change of a rusted silencer. Change of catalyst convertor about £ 400 after 80,000 miles. A lot of confusion between this model and other models as spare parts difficult to find on the catalogues.

Fuel economy is brilliant 58-62 MPG.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
No much gadgets, pretty much basic compared to Renault/Citroen.
