    April 2012

    Did you get a good deal and why?

    Yes, I'd always said to my boss that I would match the px that the local dealer offered.

    Is there any special reason why you bought this car?

    This was my boss's car, and I knew the car's full history and his reason for selling it - he upgraded to CL.

    What was the dealer like?

  • Driving it

    5 out of 5 5.0

    What's it like to drive?

    The auto box is a joy to use, people have commented on the older 5 speed box being slow off the line, but it has a calming effect and the car is a cruiser not some screaming rev hungry hot hatch.

    What's it like to park?

    Parking is much easier that my last car an Insignia, the only thing to bear in mind is teh size of the doors.

  • Living with it

    4 out of 5 4.0

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    Nothing, although the price did reflect the fact that new brakes all around were due, but even so the cost of new discs and pads all round was under £160 (parts only).

    What's most practical about your car?

    Recent motorway trips have returned 50 MPG - better than the company Insignia that I recently returned once I bought this.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    Two: The seat belt assist handing occupants in teh front their seat belts. The cruise control/speed limiter, with the limiter protecting my license in built up areas.
