    My car

    This car does everything well. But when you take the price into account, it puts it into a different league. Roadholding and performance are so-so, but by no means bad. But if you are in a queue of traffic in the rush hour, why pay for more? It's strangely roomy for such a small car, and built quality is good. Nothing has gone wrong in 6 months. The engine is a gem - once moving, you don't know it's a diesel except at the filling station - I'm getting 450/500miles to the tank. It'll eat miles at 80 on the M-way, but the mpg suffers at speed. There are many better cars out there, but none at the price.

    What a great small car,good prices to be had if you shop around, cheap to run , and tax and insure, 65mpg average,keeps up with the traffic on all roads and Mways, air con is a extra but well worth it,road and engine noise in cabin very good, lots of room front and back for a small car and a fair size boot, good driving position which is very comftable,five doors for easy acess,what else could you expect of a small car,Recommended.

    My car

    My wife has recently traded in her seven year old Nissan Micra S for a pre-reg Panda 360. She is delighted with the Panda and it is really well equiped for the price. It is very quite and nippy and on a recent run to Oban it returned almost 60 miles to the gallon. As an added point of interest the list price of the Micra was almost identical to that of the Panda but the latter is much better equiped - 5 doors, air con, metalic paint, alloys, bluetooth and an extra airbah as well as a larger engine. Proof that car prices are now more reasonable and it is today possible to have much more for your money.

    My car

    This is an update on my previous review. For what you pay, I consider this car to be unbeatable. Comfort, reliability and economy are fantastic. On a 300 mile round trip I got an average of 49mpg, this included motorways at 70 plus mph! I have owned the car for twelve months now and the only glitch has been a dead battery £70 (ouch). It has jus sailed through the MOT with no work needed. My next car? Another Panda! Thoroughly recommended.
