    My car

    i have found this car good to drive,in the 3 years i have owned it.but the down side is that every mot it has taken it has failed.This has failed on the suspension.each time it has been the springs which have been replaced.Iconsider myself a safe driver, but these mot failures have made me lose faith in my car,and now i am going to replace it, hopefully with a car that can pass an mot.

    My car

    How do I sum up this car this is actually fairly easy to do. In a straight line the engine is nice and smooth and pulls very well a little noisey but not the end of the world. However when you get it off the motorway straight bits oh dear your in trouble it just can't go round bends at all in the slightest im not talking lively driving I mean it just won't go round anything without wanting to crash the smooth suppesion on a mway is great but once again show it a bend your going off into a tree. Equipment level is very basic and the sat nav is fairly ok but can be stuiped. Do the decent thing and buy a Mondeo.

    My car

    I've had many problems with the electrics, and the car feels unstable in corners.

    The car is only two years old, yet it has many squeaks and rattles from the dashboard.

    Dealers are not very helpful, and never explain the faults.

    My car

    Had the car for two months, bought 14 months old and with 7,500 on the clock for £12,150. Fully loaded with SAT NAV and everything I need. It is an incredible piece of kit for the money. Yes, the 1.9 is slightly more economical, but it's not quite as quick and the refinement and smoothness of the V6 is a no contest. Can't fault is so far. Only critism is whilst you get leather and all the toys, the Sri wheels are much prettier.
