    My car

    This was the first car I have bought since passing my test. I have owned this car for 9 months and think its pretty good value for the £4000 I paid for it. The car is great to drive, extremely comfortable and the cruise control makes driving effortless on motorways and those long journeys. The MPG is pretty good if you're doing long journeys, I usually get 35 mpg in the 11 mile drive to and from work, but have had up to 50+ doing 60mph down the motorway. Around town it can really eat your petrol though with an average economy of 25-28 mpg!! Such is the problem of owning a big family car. The 1.8 Petrol officially accelerates from 0-60 mph in 10.6 seconds and it feels flawless in doing so. Gear changes and overtaking make for easy driving too and the car isnt bad to look at. The cabin is nice for what you pay for, but compared to newer cars on the market (especially the newer Mondeos) the cabin looks a little dated. Overall a great car, cheap, reliable and very comfortable. Would recommend to anyone who wants decent performance for a reasonable price!

    My car

    Owned this 52 plate for 3 years - fantastic diesel performance, a lot of torque through 2nd, 3rd and 4th, effortless for overtaking and when wanting to get a move on. Averaging between 400 and 500 miles to a tank but to be honest I don't do the long distance mileage to warrant owning a diesel - still better mpg than my previous Nissan Primera GT... Not had much go wrong, mainly niggly things like dash lights although suspension bushes went which apparently is a known fault for this car - if not done in warranty period (like mine...) expect a bill in the hundreds of pounds... touch wood not yet had any problem with the injectors (another common fault)

    Highly recommend this car to anyone looking for a decent, keenly priced 2nd hand diesel family car.

    My car

    I have owned this car for four years, having bought it from a car supermarket at 6 months and 9000 miles old. Overall, I wouldnt hesitate to recommend it. The car is pretty economical, averaging 45mpg, is reasonably quick and a relaxed motorway cruiser. Spec levels are ok, and the heated screen is brilliant on a frosty morning. Reliability is good, which is just as well as the dealers can be a little indifferent. Only one breakdown, an intermittent fault caused by a cam timing sensor which caused the car to cut out occasionally. Not bad in 4 years and 75000 miles.
