Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
I can carry the whole family and still have room for more !

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Very practical. Useful for friends and family on trips away.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes, but would like a 4x4 option and the uprated engine. PD 140 engine is great, and 6 speed manual gearbox makes it easy to drive.

What are you likely to buy next?
Fancy something with offroad ability.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Drives like a car. The Sport model has uprated suspension and stiffer springs. The result is minimal body roll and car like handling. High driving position very good and plenty of space to shift around when stuck in traffic when needing to attend to the baby.

What's it like to park?
Good. Parkign sensors front and back as standard very useful. Big mirrors also give excellent visibility

Living with it

Have you had any problems with the car?
Service computer was not set for long life servicing.. this was a minor inconvenience whilst the computer was reset and re-programmed. Squeak on rear doors resulted in numberous trips to the dealer who were unable to resolve the fault. Now we turn the radio up !

What's most practical about your car?
Seats 7 adults, in 5 seater mode will happily move the entire family, inc dog.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
6 disk multi changer, Gamma Radio is excellent. Chilled Glove Box. Independant rear heating system.
