What does this car say about you?
I dread to think. Old f**t probably.
What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
My workmates when I turned up in it: "What have you brought THAT for?!" "Why did you sell the Micra?".
Would you buy this car again and why?
No. Running costs (tax / fuel) too much.
What are you likely to buy next?
I pick up an 03 plate Clio tomorrow!
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?
Reasonable price given it's a rare model.
Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
Wanted a cheap 4x4 with potential to use as a day camper.
What was the dealer like?
What's it like to drive?
NOISY!! Chugga, chugga, chugga. You can't hear yourself think over the engine. Weird 'whine' from the transmission / engine note. Seats very big and supportive over a long drive, especially if you have a big a**e like me. FUEL: On a long motorway drive, the best MPG I could average was 45mpg. Around town / mixed drive, no more than 40mpg.
What's it like to park?
Rear visibility is okayish; fits fairly well into a standard space; not too wide.
Living with it
Have you had any problems with the car?
Haven't had it long, but no, not yet.
What's most practical about your car?
The sliding side door- very good. The four 'flight lockers' in the rear. High driving position.
Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
The 'mantlepiece' shelf over the drivers head at the top of the windscreen; useful for dumping odds and ends.
