    When did you buy the car?

    June 2013

    Is there any special reason why you bought this car?

    Styling, Driver Power reports (top 30 consistently since launch!), Equipment, Value.

    What was the dealer like?

    Very helpful Lookers Stockport should be proud.

  • Driving it

    4 out of 5 4.0

    What's it like to drive?

    It's fine, having come from a Focus, that's better than I thought I'd say. The best thing I can say about the engine is that it is inoffensive, but its no worse than most 1.6 family car ones. The ride is a touch bouncy, - the stiff suspension is a little at odds with the soft dampening at first, then you get used to it and appreciate it is softly dampened unlike Golfs/BMWs/Audis etc who can be brittle and crashy.

    What's it like to park?

    Ah, its main flaw. It is hideous to judge the dimensions and the lack of visibility is poor. The only gadget missing is rear parking sensors which would've been a godsend.

  • Living with it

    5 out of 5 5.0

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    Nope (but we are only 1000 miles and month in).

    What's most practical about your car?

    Keyless entry, comfortable driving position for long trips (spend 2.5hrs in absolute comfort). It also has electric everything so you barely need to do anything.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    Keyless entry is great when you have luggage and things. Bluetooth music and phone also great.
