    What does this car say about you?

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    No because this car is spoilt by a gutless engine that has been strangled by emission control so that only the smell off daffodils are emitted from the exhaust to please the EU. Having said that the finish is excellent.

    A Honda.

    Great service when selling the car but feel you are just a number afterwards.

  • Driving it

    2 out of 5 2.0

    What's it like to drive?

    This car is spoiled by a hairline jerky throttle response especially when cold and when the air conditioning is on its a lot worse. For a 1.2 8 valve engine throttle pick up is rubbish but on the other hand will cruse at 70 no trouble.

    What's it like to park?

    No problem easy.
