Change of Scenery

You were very helpful a couple of years ago helping my mother-in-law when she wanted to downsize from her Volvo V70. She has been very happy with your suggestion of the Honda Jazz. So, we're hoping you can help us? We're looking to replace our aging Renault Scenic, which is now 9yrs old. We're looking for something which is going to be practical, economical but with more style and comfort. As we live in France we were thinking about Peugeot, Renault or Citroen for ease of servicing, parts etc however this is not essential. Most of the time there are 2 of us in the car but we do have 2 dogs that have to cope with long journeys so we need a boot large enough to take their Barjo twin cage.

Well, I like the new Scenic very much indeed. Especially the 1.4TCE. In France you can get a Grande Scenic 5-seater, which provides vast
amounts of space in the back. Or the cheaper standard Scenic. They are both better to drive then C4 Picassos, with a really nice interior, and bargain-priced yet excellent SD card Carminat Tom Tom satnav
that tells you both the speed limits and the speed traps. Test and video test at: www.honestjohn.co.uk/road_tests/index.htm?id=387
