Nice ride but lacks power in hilly areas

Comfortable ride for class with plenty of room. Never achieved more than 55 mpg even on long runs. Has strange ticking noises once hot that is irritating when stop start not in operation. Very late steering. Unimaginably slow on hills. In north Devon it could only be driven in first gear. In Wales on major routes in south Snowdonia it is slower than loaded lorries to the point of being a menace. Fortunately I live in the fens, Coil bar failed in warranty, Cautioned by Vauxhall mechanic that new one would fail within a year. Service indicator system has never worked and cannot be reset. Water pump failed in warranty, warped component fitted in factory.
