Does what it says on the tin

I have had this car for around 18 months,got it very low miles from a independent dealers.first impression was the massive space inside especially with the seats down,it's helped move so many bulky items some of which didn't need the middle row laying down.moving long items is a breeze as the mid row fold independently.storage galore in the dash,doors and under the floor.drive wise,the auto box is lungy and here and there takes up to 15 mph to change 1st to 2nd.the ride height is great and with big windows in the front,visibility is good especially in a multi storey,on that front,it is a bit of a cathedral so can take a few goes to reverse it into a bay.boot space is amazing and is ideal when the kids need to change clothes or lay the baby down for a nappy change.seats are comfy in the front,ok ish in the middle and the rear ones are the forfeit seats as they aren't that comfy, slim and leg room is suited for a cat. Running costs aren't that bad considering, a tenner at 1.20 a ltr gets 60-70 miles providing you don't boot it.servicing is easy as the sump can be accessed by laying on the road and reaching underneath,oil filter is front side,only a few pipes in the way,the worst by far is the air filter which is at the top back of the engine and takes a while to strip everything down for access,check youtube for a video,budget tyres are around 50 quid.in summary, if you need the here and there use the boot seats which are independent and for a child then it's a great car and does what you want it to do,same if you want to buy something bulky and save shipping costs then its spot on.downsides are,its not the prettiest of cars and the auto box can have a mind of its own when going up steep hills as it goes from 3rd as its struggling to 2nd then decides its revving too much in 2nd so goes to 3rd then struggles, it's a pain but stick it in manual and it stops it messing about.full tank is around 60 odd quid so does batter the wallet from empty.i did have many problems with mine when I bought it which was dpf,ecu,fuse box,the wiring for the box/handbrake/esp but warranty paid for it.would I buy another one?yes because it does what you want it to do and they tend to sell at a tidy price.And no I wouldn't because if it didnt have a warranty it would have cost a bomb to fix,it's not an eye catcher and some replacement parts,the grand in its name tags itself onto the price of parts and there are others out there which look a bit nicer and gave a slightly better reputation for reliability
