    My car

    I got my 197 cup on the 1st of march fantastic car to drive but with the price of fuel now, wish i kept my punto 1.9 sporting just as fast with its turbo, so if you want a quick car and cheep to run and insure get the fiat.

    My car

    I've only had this car a week now and I love it! Previous car was a W-plate Peugeot 106 1.1 so a bit of a welcome change. I'm so impressed with this car. It really takes off in the lower gears, the turbo isnt huge but you can feel it kick in, you can really feel the car pull if you drop it down into 2nd gear and give it a bit of wellie. The handling and ride quality are very good, i'm gaining the confidence to really push it in the corners. Equipment levels are very good, I had the tunepoint fitted which works very well with my ipod, only thing this car needs is cruise control for those long motorway journeys. Economy seems very good so far, averaging 34mpg with the usual stop start driving. I would highly recommend this car to anyone looking for a good sized car with good economy. The fact that a lot of the car is made from recycled materials and also that a lot of the car is recyclable at the end of its life is a big thumbs up for me, well done Reanult!

    My car

    I bought this two months ago, reg. 07 and love it to bits, but i just cannot get it above 39.8 mpg and I have driven 3 times to London and back (I live in dorset) I dont speed, I dont accelerate hard, my tyres appear to be ok. can someone tell me what I am doing wrong?? My previous car was a 12cc punto and i got 49 suburban driving, this clio is doing about 36- 37.

    My car

    Bought this car for two reasons only: Superb fuel economy and the Quickshift gear box. The average that I am seeing on a run of 40 miles twice daily is up in the 70mpg over dual carriage way and A class roads. Quickshift gearbox can be frustrating as it doesn’t change up when you think it should and can be caught out at junctions if you don’t come to a complete halt. Seats very poor offer no support and why oh why arent reach and rake adjustment and rear speaker standard. With 9000 miles plus I am still yet to experience the dealer servicing but have seen 100% reliability.
