  • Living with it

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    A dismal record of problems, the eyesight technology went down at 300 miles and it took 8 months and 6 or so visits to the dealer to sort, on 2 occasions car was with them for a week and despite being told it had been road tested the problem reoccured almost immediately I got the car home. Since then the car is once again back with the dealer - engin cuts out when one attempts to put it in drive or reverse - dealer seems clueless as to why and information back is poor.

    What's most practical about your car?

    Off road ability - again couldnt use the enhanced version as it was also shut down when the eyesight went into error -.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    Eyesight would have been BUT it had significant problems so no cruise control for 1st 8 months.
