    My car

    It is very well made and finished, and is completely reliable to date (10 months).

    To drive it is smooth, quiet and has excellent acceleration for a family car. The automatic transmission is always in the appropriate ratio, changing instantly and steplessly when necessary. The interior is very spacious and the ride good. The driving seat can be adjusted to a high position, which is a great asset to a short person.

    I would unreservedly recommend it to a prospective buyer.

    My car

    A very pleasant car to own and drive.

    Copes well with urban and motorway driving. It's not a performance car but is a civilsed, family-oriented machine.

    I am getting 47mpg in town, which is less than was advertised. There is, though, the daily treat of not paying the Congestion Charge.

    And the £700 back from the Government (when it arrives). Luggage space is OK rather than excellent.

    I am very pleased with the car overall.
