    High driving position good. Great m/way cruiser, good around town. Don't like driving on twisty B roads! Auto box a dream. Has OK performance, but realy a cruiser.

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    When I first had it a warning light came on for oil level, which was correct by removing the overfilled oil. Electric connector on Passenger Elec seat keeps comming off, no big issue.

    7 Seats, good size boot, overall size of car not as big as many of competition.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    Fully Auto A/C better than earlier models. 7 Seats great. Parking sensors a must!
