Overall reliability

Looks like nothing else. Practical, roomy but slightly rough round the edges.

I like the way the car looks & its that the attracted me to it.
The car is roomy & handles uk roads well with only the worst getting through to the cabin.
The 2.0 mated to the automatic needs to be pushed quite hard but isnt too bad for around town use but needs being pushed when joining motorways etc.
The worst things for me are a harsh vibration about 1500-1700rpm that vibrates through the floor and seats & is made worse by thats the revs the automatic likes to be in general slow moving traffic.
The other bad thing is rattles and squeeks caused by the plastics used in the dashboard and trim.

Overall a ok car that could have been so much better with a little more refinement and a v6 under the bonnet.

Overall it wasnt great on fuel around town but I suspect that could be down to driving style plus the need to rev the engine when joining fast moving traffic.
