    My car

    Expensive and disappointing.

    It's been returned to the dealer four times since new (June 04), twice to fix water ingress, exterior door trim panel coming off and seat belt height adjustment inoperative.

    It's top of the range but has some cheap and nasty trim materials (carpet and wood effect plasic in particular).

    Rather slow and very notchy gear change. First and second gears are nothing special, third fourth and fifth have plenty oomph. An occasional annoying flat spot on acceleration in first and second.

    The road holding and ride okay.

    The rear seats are a pain to remove - heavy and awkward. It would be near impossible for most women.

    It's done 42.13mpg over 3730 miles (75/25 around town/motorway). It's never been driven hard.

    The design of the alloys is poor - it takes ten minutes to clean each one!

    I will not get another. My previous car (Scenic) was better in almost all respects.
