    My car

    I took advantage of the Diesel for Petrol offer saving £1000 on the price and have now covered 1100 miles. Taken overall, this car is one of the best I have owned in the past few years. It's comfortable, quiet and economical (51 mpg)and very well made. It has a few faults like the centre console reflecting in the windscreen and the firm ride, although this is not as bad as the disastrous Civic that I owned for a few months last year. Definitely a keeper, especially with that 7 year warranty.

    My car

    My wife & I have had this car for a 3 day test drive.The acceleration is very smooth & quick( well, anything is quicker than our 1.4 307) & I found engine to be very quiet especially on the motorway. Equipment levels are more than enough for me to play with (I like the deep orange glow at night from the dash instruments), & I found everything was within easy reach. Minor niggles: Indicator stalk on right hand side of steering wheel takes some getting used to but is manageable after a couple of days. Sound system although good bass levels was rather tinny. Door grab handles appear to be made out of cheapest plastic they could find. Such a shame as the rest of the interior was very good.Overall a good little car.

    My car

    I was maybe first Ceed owner in Edinburgh, and used that to lever and obtain, quite a substantial discount. If anything it has too many gadgets So quiet and heavily insulated impossible to get feel of engine take up when pulling away in noisy traffic at lights. Very good seats, Grumbles - no strake along doors which nearly put me off buying, and indeed after only two months I have "car park" scratches on both doors. Central console which shows hours driven etc reflects really badly on screen at night. Circling roundabout close to inside roundabout curb thick screen side upright panel,mirror, completely blocks out the roundabout kerb - quite disturbing on first occasion, a nuisance therafter.
