    My car

    Okay, it’s not the car to buy if you’re badge conscious but I’ve had the car for three years since new and never had a problem with any aspect of it.

    It’s a roomy four-door saloon with a high level of equipment. It’s cheap for a car of this specification and I thought it made more sense to get one of these from new with a view to keeping it forever, rather than buy something more conventional second-hand with a history you don’t know (other than what’s stamped in the service book).

    After three years I’m sure I’ve made the right decision. There have been no problems of any kind, the interior is wearing well and I’ve taken the family to France on a number of occasions (not just a booze cruise but a camping trips, fully-loaded to the South).

    One slight irritation is the boot. Whilst it’s truly cavernous, the boot struts take away some of the space when its closed – you need to pack things carefully or they’ll get crushed when you close it.

    It clearly won’t be everyone’s cup of tea but, once you stop comparing with cars that it doesn't pretended to be, you might just love it for what it is. I do.
