    What does this car say about you?

    That I like quality vehicles and still gets admired by many people despite the age, looks great and still stands out in a crowd.

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

    They think it is great and are must impressed with the style and comfort, used for weddings, family outings and moving lots of furniture etc. Everyone who comes in say how well it rides and runs and with the big seats very comfortable.

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    Yes I would buy this one, it does everything that I require of a vehicle, comfort looks, economy and still drives like a new car.

    What are you likely to buy next?

    None. I think this one will do another 10 years yet, it has only done 110,000miles so is good for another 100,000 I would say.

  • Driving it

    5 out of 5 5.0

    What's it like to drive?

    Brilliant on long journeys, you arrive just as fresh as when you started, motorway cruising.town or country roads can't be beat, plus over 40 MPG what more could I ask for.

    What's it like to park?

    Easier than any car, great vision, great lock, but would not be as easy if the back sensor where not fitted. It is a long vehicle but does not feel like it with the big mirrors and all of the vision through the side window etc.

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    Not much for a car this age - new track rod end and two new bushes.

    What's most practical about your car?

    Everything: the steering has good lock, the ride, the seating,(captain's seat very wide and comfortable), the speed, easy to park, 7 seats take out 5 and you have van. Still made up with it after all these years, not much chance of me changing it.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    Rear reversing sensor and camera fitted for be by the garage - you need the sensor with a car this big.
