What's the Chevrolet Captiva like?

I am thinking of buying a Chevrolet Captiva. It's got 81,000 miles on the clock and the trader is asking £3995.. It's got service history and MoT until April 2017. Plus three months warranty. Inside and out is immaculate. It drives well too. What are your thoughts on the Captiva?
