What do you think of the Vauxhall Signum?

What are your opinions of a Vauxhall Signum as an alternative to an estate? I am 6-feet 5-inches so am concerned that in a small estate, the person/child behind me will have zero legroom.

Horrible handling, intrusive ESP and a sort of plastic tower thing between the front seats that rattled even when the cars were new. Best avoided, especially the dire 1.9-litre diesel. A Skoda Superb Mk 1 or Mk II makes more sense.
