What does this car say about you?
Middle aged man, mid life crisis. absolutely not. Love driving with the roof down.
What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Family think I had gone mad, friends think I am a poser. Friends probably right, I could have bought an Astra or a Renault. No thanks.
Would you buy this car again and why?
Probably not. Too small in the rear for growing kids.

A5 cabriolet, Vauxhall Cascada.

Did you get a good deal and why?
We had travelled to see the car, which the dealer knew. He wouldn't budge on the price, as he knew we weren't going to leave without the car.
Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
I wanted to own and drive a Convertible/.
What was the dealer like?
Very helpful and friendly.
What's it like to drive?
Coming from a Vectra Dti the car is quick, nimble and responsive.
What's it like to park?
No more or less difficult than any other car, and no, the car does not have parking sensors. Yes the C pillars of the roof hamper rear vision a bit, but then isn't that what wing mirrors are for. I drive an articulated lorry, and am used to getting out and having a look, something more drivers should try....!!
