    What does this car say about you?

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

    Grandma loves the colour, Dad loves the drive but mum thinks there are too many issues with the design of the car.

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    Not for me unfortunately, there just seems to be a lot of 'common problems' that are a bit off putting. Also the boot is a bit small I currently have a young baby and had to buy a new pushchair because my previous one was too big for the very narrow boot.

    What are you likely to buy next?

    Ford Ka (2009-) shape or possibly the corsa d but not sure.

    What's it like to drive?

    I enjoy driving it athough am only a learner driver, however my Dad has commented on how much he enjoys driving it as it so responsive and nippy.

    What's it like to park?

    Seems easy as it is lovely and small and has good vision all round and the drivers seat is also height adjustable brilliant if like me you are not that tall.

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    Was brought as spares and repair on the basis that the MOT had expired, but was not prepared for just how much was wrong. The car had an issue with cutting out and after spending nearly £300 on various repairs have now found that the car needs the ECU repaired (seems to be a common problem through my own research) and the car also leaks in the drivers footwell again a common issue with these cars.

    What's most practical about your car?

    Is small and cheap to insure and run petrol wise.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    My lovely automatic gearbox with sports option.
