Want to know everything there is to know about this car?

  • Summary

    1 out of 5 1.0

    What does this car say about you?

    It says that I make rash assumptions about a manufacturer based on a mis-placed reprutation for reliability.

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    My deep-seated loathing of the car is an endless source of amusement

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    Never. I'd rather walk.

    What are you likely to buy next?

    The modern MPV concept appeals and the competeing Mazda 5, Ford C/S-Max would be of interest -anything as long as it's not a Toyota.

    When did you buy the car?

    March 2008

    Did you get a good deal and why?

    The deal is to pay a modest sum for a car with a seamingly high specification which is then inevitably built down to a price - and it shows, and then some.

    Is there any special reason why you bought this car?

    Supplied from a common fleet

    What was the dealer like?

  • Living with it

    1 out of 5 1.0

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    A miriad of minor faults that are too irritating to live with and too minor for the dealership network bother to address. Plus: Alarming oil consumption, mis-aligned steering, scoured brake discs, racing engine idle. Climate control, cruise control and a sound system with a mind of their own. Paint & trim with the resilience of a wet paper bag. Panel dents incurred during assembly then simply painted over.

    What's most practical about your car?

    Someone else may be willing to buy it from us when we're done.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    Rear parking sensors - the one gadget that works properly for now.
