    What does this car say about you?

    That I'm the wrong side of 50.

    No bad comments - then if you are giving them a lift they are hardly going to complain.

    What are you likely to buy next?

    When this one gives up the ghost guess it will be time to down size to something like a Jazz or a Note.
