• Summary

    5 out of 5 5.0

    What does this car say about you?

    Wanna-be farmer. No nonsense, what you see is what you get type.

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    Probably not a lot until it snows and they can't get theirs out of the garage.

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    Yes if I didn't have such a long commute. It's been a pleasure to drive it. It's never put a foot (or wheel) wrong. A classic in my opinion.

    What are you likely to buy next?

    Looking at a Saab 9-3 estate purely for the MPG.

    4 out of 5 4.0

    What's it like to drive?

    Bang on. Just point it in the direction you want to go and away you go. It's not the nippiest by a long way but I never intended to buy a sports car.

    What's it like to park?

    Reasonable. Sometimes you have to open the door to reverse park but it's got great all round vision.

  • Living with it

    4 out of 5 4.0

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    No. Slightest of oil leaks but that's about it.

    What's most practical about your car?

    The all round vision from the driving position and the huge load carrying potential.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    Adjustable suspension on the fly. Excellent for when you have to suddenly drive over rough, uneven ground.
