Hard to beat

Have owned this car for almost 4 years and nearly 50,000 miles. Aside from the known minor issues (all of which have been resolved at low cost: blown diverter valve, battery bay drain, glove box hinge), this car has never caused me any issues or let me down. Keeping to regular service intervals (8,000-12,000) and maintenance recommendations, keep the oil topped up regularly (this engine/model is known to use a little more oil than most - not a fault, just down to the engine operating hotter than others) its just keeps on going!

The interior is great. It's comfortable, it's a pleasant place to sit on a long journey. It's very practical in terms of space - we take a lot of kit on holiday (walking gear, surfboards, dog) it all fits in nicely.

Fuel economy is good for the size of car and performance available, but really drops when used in and around town. On longer journeys, it will return around 35mpg. Which is quite good considering the real MPG for any of the newer equivalent models is not any better!

I have often thought about upgrading to something that looks good, has the big boot, drives and performs well... then I come back to this car every time! I can see no reason to change this car unless I out grow it and need more space. The price that you can get one of these for now they are getting older seems to represent excellent value for money. Would recommend to anyone considering.
