    My car

    Good Things - big as a Mondeo, very comfortable, huge boot, huge space in the back for kids, Elegance has all the kit you need, 1.6 TDI with DSG is more than adequate for people like me, sat nav and infotainment system works well, drives well (I'm not a boy racer), well put togther, dash is logical, dual climate is simple and effective.....so many positives. It's so, so easy to get on with.

    Bad Things - can't get near the claimed 74mph. In mitigation only 3500 miles in, so hope it improves with my light right foot. Also I appreciate few will admire the look of the car, but I think that's a positive. I don't want a car that gains attention. I want a car that does all the simple things well.

    In short, very, very happy with my choice, so far.

    My car

    The car is very fuel efficient but lacks a bit of power (as expected). It comes with good equipment and 0% finance deal. It’s comfortable to drive and does feel good to drive it. Now, here come the bad news. I’ve had some issue with rain water being trapped at the bottom of either side of the front door. Spoke with the dealer and it looks to be a known issue (Something wrong with the design of the door seal?). Overall a good car to drive, would still recommended it despite the water problem.
