    What was the dealer like?

    The dealer falsified the service record to say the timing belt had been changed. I contacted the previous owners who confirmed they had never had this changed The dealer argued and lied about all this, then eventually offered to pay towards the cost of getting the work done, then ceased trading and started again under a different name. Was Elite Motors, now Blue Ocean Cars in Keighley.

  • Living with it

    3 out of 5 3.0

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    Lots of little niggly faults, window mechanism failed fixed for £30 worth of parts and a couple of evenings with the door in bits. Remote locking stopped working, which meant the alarm went off every time I got into the car. Currently the drivers side door latch doesn't work properly, so you have to faff about with it to get the door to close each time.

    What's most practical about your car?

    Starts every day, massive boot.
