    My car

    I have the auto version and as you guessed it, I got problems although its got fsh and 66k miles these boxes are poor! Apart from that, it's a nice car and I would buy another but not an auto version. It has a quiet engine, is comfortable and looks nice, so I would recomend one .

    My car

    Had this car from new (seven years). It has been very reliable - I've only had to replace normal maintenance items. Performs very well, is fast, handles well, and is comfortable to drive. I prefer it to my partner's two-year-old Focus.
