Overall reliability

Reliable, comfortable and versatile

I bought this car for the large cargo space and good passenger legroom, both front and rear. It has done 85,000 miles with no trouble, apart from the usual wipers, tyres, brake pads and discs. I had it serviced by the franchised dealer until the warranty ran out and since then by a small local garage. It is a bit thirsty (long term average about 33 m.p.g.unleaded on a mix of town and motorway), but the acceleration is really good when overtaking, or pulling away at a junction.
My only regrets are not getting the pack with electric rear windows and bluetooth handsfree (if that was available then).
