What does this car say about you?
Trying too hard. Fussy styling looks very over the top when compared to rivals.
What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Indifferent. Neighbour commented; "did I see you driving a girls car earlier!!"
Would you buy this car again and why?
No. Just way off the mark in so many areas. Wind noise, annoying trip computer, dull to drive, styling too sickly, use of excellent materials inside, spoilt by use of cheaper materials in other areas.
What are you likely to buy next?
Used to have a stilo, would consider buying a nearly new multiwagon - excellent cars.
Type of dealer you bought from?
Did you buy this car new?
What price did you pay?
When did you buy the car?
Did you get a good deal and why?
Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
I didn't buy the car. I took it for a 24 hour testdrive.
What was the dealer like?
Not very good. The dealer assured me that the trip computer could be set to stay on, despite being unable to show me, and the manual indicating to the contray. Also were unable to explain the awful windnoise. When realised I didn't like the car, became quite offish with me.
What's it like to drive?
Dull. No feel, and engine felt quite flat when compared to the same unit in the 206. Driving position also a little awkward.
What's it like to park?
Difficult to judge the size of the front, and the pillars and screen at the back make it hard to reverse park.

Have you had any problems with the car?
What's most practical about your car?
Spacoius cabin, but poor entry to boot and difficult to get in and out of without scuffing the huge bits of plastic near the sills.
