    Yes because it was a trade-in at a Ford Dealers and they wanted to off-load it,.

    Is there any special reason why you bought this car?

    It is built like the Yamato; heavy, rigid safe and sturdy. It is very well equipped; sunroof and air-con and exclusive; less than a thousand on the roads now.

    Polite, personable and professional.

  • Driving it

    5 out of 5 5.0

    What's it like to drive?

    Very quiet, surefooted and refined. You can tootle and waft about, or the baseball cap can reverse and it will dance. Very much a sophisticated cruiser rather than a rally slag.

    What's it like to park?

    I have electromagnetic parking sensor all round so it is easy. It has quite a large turning circle, however the smooth clutch and throttle and great visibility offset this.

  • Living with it

    5 out of 5 5.0

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    It has never failed to proceed.

    What's most practical about your car?

    The 4WD system. It is a true all season vehicle; brilliant in the rain and with winter tyres virtually unstoppable in the snow. You can also drop the back seats; with a little modification, you just need to add the release handles and cables.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    The X-Carlink allows hands free calls, iPod, MP3, SD card etc connectivity.
