2.4i SE(04/04-01/07) 5d Geartronic

Want to know everything there is to know about this car?

In their own words

I bought this for the dogs and Spanish jaunt’s, will get nearer 40 on a run, wish ac was in boot, car is smooth on road and easy to drive, paid to much for car BUT as two previous owners n full history I expected the car to faultless…….£855 costs in oil leaks later the car is good…… trader and warranty are useless as like most are, overall the car does do everything we need it to and I would have another but would opt for the T5 version, door cards are disappointing and so is storage overall, the 5 cylinder engines are excellent and at 100k oil seals are tolerable.

How reliable do you find the car?

Had an annoying small oil leak (apparently not covered on warranty)…….labour cost twice as first mechanic only changed one seal and the other seal started leaking within 3 days.
