What's it like to drive?
Cruises easily on the motorway, no effort to drive it but you are still involved. Great performance that gives other drivers a fright as they don't expect it from an estate car. Puts a smile on your face when you drive it.

Once you are used to the size, no problem.
Living with it
Have you had any problems with the car?
Premature crankshaft pulley wear which leads to a turnover of aux belts every 6,000, but we only actually changed the pulley at 157,000, the original was still on there. Aside from that, perfect.
What's most practical about your car?
The space and the fact it eats motorway miles with no fuss. Perfect motorway cruiser but with great performance when needed.
