Want to know everything there is to know about this car?
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.
Type of dealer you bought from?
Did you buy this car new?
What price did you pay?
When did you buy the car?
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?
What's it like to drive?
A van in drag
What's it like to park?
A van with extra windows
Living with it
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.
