  • Living with it

    4 out of 5 4.0

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    I've covered 80k miles in 5 years and it has had a few bits but only due to wear and tear. Starts first time, every time, sweet as a nut. One thing gone wrong is central locking which means I have to use key to access drivers door, probably an easy fix but it doesn't bother me.

    What's most practical about your car?

    Size, particularly legroom in rear.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    Cruise control.
