Have you had any problems with the car?
I have just part exchanged the car after 6 years of troublesome motoring. Within a couple of months the car started playing up having to be returned numerous times (twice on a transporter when car undriveable). Mainly electrical problems but generally car was a pain . Anti pollution fault kept appearing over the years and cost me loads of money trying to put right. Electrics are definately sub standard with different warning dash board lights coming on throughout ownership.

What's most practical about your car?
Size.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Electric sliding doors when working properly, could be very tempermental. Realigned under warranty but never reliable.
