    Did you buy this car new?


    What price did you pay?


    When did you buy the car?

    May 2013

    Did you get a good deal and why?

    I guess it was a good deal, reasonable part exchange price for my old car.

    Is there any special reason why you bought this car?

    I wanted a diesel as the millage I was doing increased and a petrol just wasn't cutting it.

    What was the dealer like?

    Problematic as alot of used car dealers are, they don't like people who know their rights when purchasing a second hand car. Problems were resolved eventually though.

  • Driving it

    3 out of 5 3.0

    What's it like to drive?

    Steering is very sketchy, very firm ride which made the interior rattle going over pebbles! Motorway driving wasn't too bad, gave good MPG on a long trip but nothing near more modern diesels.

    What's it like to park?

    Horrible, the turning circule is woeful and you need a field next to the car beside you as the doors as so long you risk smacking them if any closer.

  • Living with it

    3 out of 5 3.0

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    Yep: Directional and auto level headlights (both sensors needed replacing) Turbo, the actuator failed under 70,000 miles! Very expensive fix Clutch and Dredded dual mass flywheel, failed under 80,00 which I believe is average Parking sensors CD Autochanger.

    What's most practical about your car?

    The boot space isn't too bad with the seats down, can fit a fair few boxes etc in it.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    Didn't have one really, if I had to choose auto headlights/wipers.
