    What does this car say about you?

    Big and bold!

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

    Love the look but it is very uncomfortable in the back. You can feel every bump and knock in the road.

    No, only because I want to try something different. Would not rule it out in the future however.

    Kia Sportage or an Audi S3.

    Did you buy this car new?


    What price did you pay?


    When did you buy the car?

    February 2010

    Did you get a good deal and why?

    Yes eventually - though it took a great deal of negotiation on my part.

    Is there any special reason why you bought this car?

    Liked the look, reliability, drive factor. First time buying a car!

    What was the dealer like?

    Awful! Pushy, arrogant, didn't listen to what I wanted. Brought in his manager to seal the deal as he was unable to do so!

  • Driving it

    4 out of 5 4.0

    What's it like to drive?

    Perfect on motorways - a real plough horse. A bit difficult round towns. Needs a good blow out regularly or else the battery life decreases drastically. Lovely smooth drive though. Clutch, braking and gear mechanics all comfortable.

    What's it like to park?

    Great! In fact I've become too reliant on the sensors!

  • Living with it

    4 out of 5 4.0

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    Initially, straight after purchase, the suspension was knocking on the passenger side and the battery had reached the end of its life but everything else (to date) has been ok.

    What's most practical about your car?

    Seats are sensible and super comfortable and the dashboard and gear stick are well positioned for a comfortable drive.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    Love the dashboard and onboard computer. All info available at the touch of a button.
