Want to know everything there is to know about this car?
What does this car say about you?
Practical and economic! It's the longest I have ever owned the same car, and I don't really find anything else to do the job so well and reliably.
What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
A functional & flexible car.
Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes, becuase it does everything well (except the rurning circle).
What are you likely to buy next?
Don't know, but I am looking at the Auris & Verso-S, Honda Civic, Jazz & VW Golf. (Also poss Skoda Octavia).
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?
I bought a 3 month old ex Sale car, with under 4K miles on the clock, for £2K under new price.
Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
I previously owned a Corolla (still doing well owned by my daughter) & I wanted to have a reliable replacement.
What was the dealer like?
What's it like to drive?
Really pleased with the drive. It's stable, has good acceleration & cruising is effortless on the motorway. It's very economical ... returning over 50mpg on a long rune, and around 45mpg overall.
What's it like to park?
Not so good! My only gripe with the car is the large turning circle often needing multi point turns. Reversing is now much safer after installing rear parking sensors.
Living with it
Have you had any problems with the car?
Nothing has gone wrong. It has performed well for nearly 5 years (77K miles on clock now.).
What's most practical about your car?
Easily converts to a flat load carrier. No lip on the rear ...just remove luggage cover & flip seats down. Simple.
