    My car

    I work for an electricity supplier, therefore need the ability to go off road, checking overhead lines. The car performs well with muddy terrain.

    It's very comfortable to drive but the rear passenger seat's very straight.

    My car

    We have the five-door VX version and have been delighted with it. If driven carefully, you can easily achieve 45+ mpg on a decent run. It has lots of space and cabin has good 'feel' about it.

    It is now three years old and has performed faultlessly. The only minus point would be that rear door which doesn't open as fully as, say, the Honda CRV.

    My car

    I bought this three-door diesel new a year ago but soon realised the three-door was a huge mistake, being far too small.

    It was noisy at most speeds, particularly at 60-70mph. The rear door not opening fully drove me crazy. Last week I thankfully got rid of the car.

    My car

    I use a D4-D VX mostly on the motorway. To drive it is fantastic. I believe the brand new model is out during 2005.

    The New D4-D is great and I am going to get it.

    I have done 45,000 in two years and I have not had any engine problems.
