    My car

    I am so disappointed with this car and wished I had never seen it. The very pushy salesman insisted I would achieve 42mpg and I was looking for economy in a bigger car. I also have a Seat Alhambra which does 44 to 50mpg so this seemed reasonable. I have never managed above 31.8 and I am a careful driver. I fill the tank and the range is about 340 miles...compared to 625 in my Seat. The Blue Tooth it dire. Pulling out of a junction can be tricky as sometimes it lurches and there is a slight delay before it goes. I was told it would have heated windscreen wipers (it doesn't) and the ECO button makes not a jot of difference! The salesman said it would improve mpg. I am getting rid as soon as I can.

    My car

    I ordered this car and have yet to take ownership. I just wanted to pick up on a point in What Car's review - They say the rear seat has a large central tunnel running down the middle making that position very uncomfortable. We chose this car over the likes of a Qashqai because it DIDN'T have this issue (ie is has a nice flat floor). The middle seat is a bit harder than those on the outside (A problem with almost all non large MPV's). I'll update once I have the car .. stars given so far are estimates !

    My car

    Had this car from new just over 2 years now. Nice to drive and good to look at, although a little firm because of 17in wheels option. Others who have driven it have also been impressed with its drive. However last service (just filters and oil) took 4 days because dealer could not get the parts. Now thanks to a broken gearbox mount (at 24,000 miles!) I've been without the car for almost a full month.

    My car

    I really don't know what car you were thinking of when you wrote this review, but it cannot be the KX-2. I own this car and I have to say I love it. It looks great, the amount of equipment you get on it is phenomenal for the price, the performance is excellent and it is a joy to drive. I'm not sure how you were driving it when you say there is engine and wind noise, mine is quite quiet. Let's face it, it's a DIESEL, and it isn't going to be as quiet as a petrol. The same would be true of any car, so low stars for that is unfair. I think it's a wonderful car and am very happy with it. And for a 2.0 litre diesel with quite a punch in 2nd and 3rd gears, the fuel consumption is really quite good. I'm not sure your reviewer hasn't mixed this up with another car as it sounds nothing like mine.
