    4 out of 5 4.0

    What's it like to drive?

    Automatic makes it simple to drive the size is not a problem, height can help in traffic, visibility forward is good, rear vision is limited. This is no sports car! but I have cruised for over 500 miles easily 6 times now long journeys are not a problem.

    What's it like to park?

    Parking can be tough, its as big as most parking bays so getting in and out can be tough, I try to park in a end bay or by a pillar in Multi storeys so no one can park tight at my side.

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    Puncture after 20K miles and could not get the wheel off had to call RAC. Even with no wheel nuts fitted I dropped the car off the jack and still the wheel would not come off the hub. RAC used a large bit of wood and a big mallet.

    What's most practical about your car?

    I have 3 children but can take two of their mates as well 7 seats have saved using 2 cars many times. I drive within the speed limits and get 35 MPG a 500 mile european motorway run at 90 mph only gave 27 MPG my worst ever!

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    sliding electric doors are very useful even though I did not want them but the dealer had the car in stock.
