    Not too flash on the outside.

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

    I think they like it, they know I do.

    When did you buy the car?

    December 2009

    Same spec car was £800 cheaper than main dealer and was open on a Sunday when main dealer was closed.

    Is there any special reason why you bought this car?

    Had been looking for this model to replace a very tired Fiat Stilo.

    What was the dealer like?

    Very good, no pressure sale. Just gave me the keys to have a look round the car and start it up. Also gave me the price I thought the Fiat was worth in p/ex.

  • Driving it

    5 out of 5 5.0

    What's it like to drive?

    Great, plenty of power even with the smaller engine and 5 speed box. Very economical to run and cheap to tax and insure.

    What's it like to park?

    Great, even though it's a fairly big car, it's very easy to fit in any parking space.
