    Did you buy this car new?


    What price did you pay?


    When did you buy the car?

    April 2010

    Did you get a good deal and why?

    I felt that the total cost to change was a good deal. Car was priced well and they made a part ex value on my car that was very tempting.

    Is there any special reason why you bought this car?

    Large boot, comfy drive, decent power.

    What was the dealer like?

    Very good about making any mechanical changes prior to purchase.

  • Driving it

    5 out of 5 5.0

    What's it like to drive?

    VERY good. Needs a stiffer roll bar if you like spirited driving, but it is great fun from low down the rev range.

    What's it like to park?

    Challenging, until you get used to it. You can't see the front bumper properly and the rear overhangs the wheels by quite a bit.

  • Living with it

    5 out of 5 5.0

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    Until very recently, no. Its now seven years old and turbo is starting to go as is the DMF and something in the engine.

    What's most practical about your car?

    The large boot. It's huge! And its comfortable for four.
