    Have you had any problems with the car?

    Initially broke down repeatedly and showed ERG fault. That had already been replaced and after a lot of time, no-one could determine the reason. Garage I use regularly suggested it might be one of two sensors and took a chance on changing these. It has since driven without a problem.

    What's most practical about your car?

    Good rear seat passenger space.

    There are none!!!
