    When did you buy the car?

    September 2013

    Did you get a good deal and why?

    I thought so, but I'm sure the dealers also thought so...

    Is there any special reason why you bought this car?

    Desired a small 4WD with room for 2 large dogs.

    What was the dealer like?

  • Driving it

    2 out of 5 2.0

    What's it like to drive?

    Much more thirsty and less powerful than I imagined. Getting 32mpg. Auto can be jumping around, so often I need to hold it in gear on hills. Cruise control works but has a large amount of tolerance, as speed can be up to 5 mph different from what was set.

    What's it like to park?

    Just as expected from this type of vehicle.

  • Living with it

    3 out of 5 3.0

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    Nothing consistent. Stereo doesn't work, so about to be replaced.

    What's most practical about your car?

    Adaptable space & access to boot through rear window.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    Cruise control. I am very confused by my model, as it has leather seats & cruise control, but no trip computer, no heated seats or no sunroof. So it doesn't quite fit into either GLS or CDX spec.
