    Unbelievable, this or a Ford Escort ??

    I've had no major problems in over 5 years, 27MPG average, parts not cheap but no worse than rivals, do all my own servicing, never touch garages !!

    Driving

    5 out of 5 5.0

    I would need 2 cars to better this car, e.g. a Ferrari and a Rolls.

    Performance

    5 out of 5 5.0

    Probably best V6 in the world, takes off at 4500RPM as if turbocharged, fantastic sound, serene cruiser

  • Living with it

    Reliability

    4 out of 5 4.0

    No real problems in over 5 years, however they can be delicate, handle with care.

    3 out of 5 3.0

    Couldn't care a less, it's the driving that counts but it is styled by Pininfarina for those in the know.

    I have not driven anything that combines such comfort with pure driving satisfaction.

    3 out of 5 3.0
