What does this car say about you?
Someone who wants an economical, modern, spacious, well equipped city car.
What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes, but I wouldn't be happy paying the list price. I don't think it is worth the £10K asking. A brilliant proposition at £6.5K though!
What are you likely to buy next?
I'm planning to keep this for atleast 10 years, so I don't know.
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?
A pre-reg at £6500. Over £3K off the list price.
Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
A brand new car at a good price. 5 Doors, well equipped, 1.2L engine, economical & a 5 year waranty to boot. All at £6500, so why buy used with all of the worry about it history!
What was the dealer like?
Good at the negotiation stage (done on the phone). The hand over was efficient. I had a problem trying to obtain the service book, since it was not supplied at hand over and I had to phone a number of times to request it via the post.
What's it like to drive?
It drives nicely and without complaint. I was worried about buying one given some other negative comments, but all I can say is that it drives nicely. I'm able to get to motorway speeds without effort. It hold motorway speeds easily and surprisingly with plenty in reserve. It handles safely and predictably. It rides comfortably. It is no sports car, but it does the job well.
What's it like to park?
Rear visibility can be an issue in some situations, but it is a small car with light steering, so it isn't a big problem.

The five doors.
Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
