What does this car say about you?
Its not really me... but its a compramise car, it suits the family needs, and is not tedious to drive. If you have a family and occasionaly need 3 rows of seats, jobs a good un.
What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Family love it because the middle bench seats are comfortable and fully reclinable. Air con in the back row keeps the little one happy. Wife loves it as all the seets fold flat to put the shopping in.. :-(
Would you buy this car again and why?
I would never buy any car twice.. But I would recommend it, for reliability, handling and comfort.. But If you need to carry more than four adults on a long journy regularly, it wont be big enough. If taking 6 people on holiday you need a roof box as the boot is tiny with the seats folded up.
What are you likely to buy next?
An alfa, just for fun.
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?
It was about the money.
Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
Needed an extra seat. Also liked the fact it didn't drive like an MPV.
What was the dealer like?
Friendly, haven't have any problems with the car so didn't really need to use them.
What's it like to drive?
After owning a fast car, Its not quite as much fun... But I have to say the handling is spot on and can be chucked into corners without much body roll, yet still produce a smooth ride. It has more of an estate feel rather than People Carrier. The engine needs to be revved to get the most out of it, but there enough power to overtake. 0-60 is around 9 seconds. It likes to be driven smoothly at low revs as well.
What's it like to park?
Easy, it is longer than it feels though.
Living with it
Have you had any problems with the car?
A little bit of water has gone into the fog light, apart from that its been very reliable.
What's most practical about your car?
the back seets fold nicely away, and the middle seats fold right down flat so you get a very nice loading area if needed.
Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
electric sunroof, heated/electric mirrors, climate control (including separate air con for back seats). All windows controllable from drivers side and can be locked to save the kids playing with them all journey. A load of air bags all around.
