    My car

    This has been my wifes car for the past two and a half years covering nearly 30,000 mainly trouble free miles. Only real problems to date have been the appetite for tyres, the battery draining overnight on three occassions and noisy aircon. Other than that its been a pleasure to own. Cheap insurance and reasonable service costs combined with good MPG figures (over 41mpg fully laden with a roof box and bikerack) make it difficult to beat for our purposes. Will definately have another.

    My car

    While the car is generally very good the overall effect is ruined by the amount of road noise that reaches the cabin - compared to my previous Focus TDCi Estate this car is unacceptably noisy at all speed levels. This appears to be tyre noise as I was able to compare it with the estate in a free wheel test. Our local mototing journalists appear to be dodging the issue as they refuse to go to print on it.

    My car

    Make sure you wear a watch in this car,the clock is useless, you can not reset it yourself. Have had it reset by "ford engineers" half a dozen times and it lasts about ten minutes. I have now given up and have a travel clock stuck on the dash! I can't reach the storage tray on the front dash without straining my shoulder, the dash is about 3 foot deep! I have also experienced excessive wear on front tyres, it has just failed it's first mot for this very reason. Otherwise it has been a good car and is quite nifty once it gets going. Electric brake took some getting used to but quite like it now. Overall, been nice to know ya - 6 out of 10.

    My car

    I have had this car from new and for the first 12 months it was unbelievable. There were a few small problems, recalls etc. But the main issue was brake failure, which after 3 attempts by the dealer was Identified as a trapped servo hose? My frustration was really due to the poor customer service I recieved at my local dealership from where I bought my car, basically they were not bothered, absolutely disgracefull! However back to the car, I have to say that since the initial problems the car has been good, economy and performance for this type of car are excellent, best by far for this range of MPV.
