    My car

    I won this car 2005 it's great to drive. The indicators are on the opposite side and I'm use to that. It's got a big boot but the seats are too low. The engine size is rather small for size of the car and I find it not powerful enough with five people in the car. When travelling on the motorway it can travel comfortable at 60 and 70mph. The steering wheel position is fine.Soon we may change our car to a Kia Cee'd

    My car

    I've had this car from new. Value for money is fantastic, although trim is rather cheap. But it's hard wearing, as it's survived 3 young children and two dogs. Has been extremely reliable over the past 6 years. Only bad point is it's very rattlely. Would be very happy to buy another one but they've changed the shape so boot space isn't big enough.

    I drove this car in our rallies. It has a good suspension and handling for this use.

    My car

    Brilliant. I loved every single second that I was in it. It drove well and felt well made.

    the boot was massive, as was leg room and I would gladly buy one.
