    Have you had any problems with the car?

    There were a few sensor problems to start with but cost next to nothing to resolve. I got a good 4 years trouble free before having to reset the rear suspension, common problem when the car gets to a certain age. Then randomly which triggered my reason for getting rid of it the alarm and immobilizer started playing up. There was an easy solution to the issue, turned both of them of and just used the standard key in lock method.

    What's most practical about your car?

    Not a lot, though you could fit a dumpy level and staff in the boot if that is any help.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    Momo tan leather interior.
