Overall reliability

A very comfortable, economical, practical car

Good points;- Comfort - Very quiet and comfortable for four adults with plenty leg room all round. The seats are supportive without being hard. The armrests seem to be in the right place.
Economy - Averaging around 46mpg during summer months and around 42mpg in winter mainly town running. I regularly get 55mpg on long trips with the best being on a trip from Essex to Fort William when it acheived an astonishing 59mpg on mainly motorway driving.
Performance - It does most things in just about any gear but if you want real get up go just slip it into 3rd gear and hang on !!
Reliabilty - Not a high mileage user so have only 30,000 or so with no problems at all.
Not so good points;- Headlights - ok as long as it isn't dark !! Full beam is fine but the dip is poor to say the least.
Heater air flow direction controls are set so low that it is impossible to see them while driving.
Open any of the five doors on a wet day and water runs onto the seats/boot contents.
Single rear fogs and reversing lights - penny pinching on car of this standard and price.
