rear seats are useless, not suitable for more than 2 baby seats, drives very poor, steering is good but backend tends to swing. mileage to next refill changes constantly, one min will say 109 miles to go then 24 m2g. the engine fault light comes on the sensors bleep constant when yr metres away.for a family car this is naff, as u can only use 2 seats safely for baby sats as u cant use the middle seat or the rear seats or the front passenger seat, mines going as i hate it
Had this car for 18 months now and absolutely love it. Had the convers+ console replaced under warranty by dealers and a couple of other minor niggles all sorted. Build quality is excellent inside and out. I still get a thrill when I get in the car and look around it. Even the piano black centre console has remained unmarked. Had to replace front tyres at 16500, rears are fine. Never manage more than 20mpg but I do tend to do a lot of school runs. All my kids, from 4 to 13 love sitting in the rear seats no matter how far we are travelling. Car very fast for size, leaves the boyracers standing. Its a sports car, a bus, a van, whatever you want! I could change it for one with better mpg and cheaper tax but to be honest I just love this car too much. It's a keeper!
Having had the car for two years i would say it is probably the best large MPV to get if you like driving. The smax handles like a normal car with plenty of grunt from the 2.0 TDCI engine, mine has the x-pack which includes a number of things but the 18' wheels are the best add on which really makes the car look cool.The only downside is with the car being heavy i only get about 14000 miles to a set of front tires (which cost £185.00 each to replace). If you can live with that shock then you will love the car.
Had this a while now. At first I was a bit worried about the small engine but in reality it is plenty of torgue and is quite refined. Good... Handles very well for a 'bus' but is no match for my F2 day car (not kidding) LOL. Rides the UK roads well and is practical and economic. The kids (3)love it and it looks very cool in black. Bad... Flakey interior bits (mostly good) especially the further back you go, hit and miss dealers.
Overall a very good car, far superior to the sloppy, ugly and badly built renaults, and way in front of the citroen C4 which has the worst gearbox in the world, even worse than the R-tronic Audi R8 which is saying something. If you are a family person and enjoy driving this is the car to buy.
