Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
I don't care really, you can love it or hate it does'nt bother me, all that matters is I love it and it makes me feel good when it gets alot of looks.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
I've not really had a bad word said about it, most people are surprised how cool it is when they have a good look.

Would you buy this car again and why?
With out a doubt, it is the best car I have ever bought but that is in my opinion of course, I don't think anyone would hate owning this car.

What are you likely to buy next?
Maybe the new Soul as it has a six speed gear box, but if my finances will allow I may go for the Kia sportage, who knows but for now me and the Soul are best mates so I don't want anything else.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
It is the best car i've driven to date and I have owned a few. It sits on the motorway at 70 without a fuss, easy to drive but a little harsh over bumps with its 18 inch wheels, but I can live with that as I smile every time I drive it.

What's it like to park?
Peace of cake really, the reverse sensors help but its not to long or wide so its an all round winner for me and the wife.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Not a thing, its like a dream come true and the 7 year warranty helps.

What's most practical about your car?
Its easy to park which is great for my wife as she does struggle a bit with spacial awareness.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
This car has so many its hard to name one in particular but I suppose its the ipod connection.
