    My car

    I have had my Mokka almost a year now and overall I am delighted with it.

    I cannot understand a lot of the reviews on here. If you take this for what it is: a family crossover for everyday use; it not only looks the part but more than does the job it is supposed to. It's not a competitor to luxurious cars, sure. But I neither have the money nor the lifestyle to afford such a motor!

    The kit on the techline is more than generous. Great Sat Nav with dynamic traffic, cruise control, parking sensors, auto lights, auto wipers, DAB radio, auto dimming rear mirror... a lot of pluses. I also had the rear camera option which I must say is more useful than I initially thought it would be; a great addition.

    Running costs are good; I get around 500 miles out of a tank of fuel (someone can do the conversion to MPG for me - it is I'm sure on the on-board trip computer but I rarely look - I base it on how many miles a tank gets me!). Tax is low (£30 a year) and insurance I get for around £300 a year (and that's with 2 previous claims and a speeding conviction!).

    The cabin is spacious and driving position excellent. Sure, running it could be quieter but I usually crank up the superb DAB radio anyway!

    My only criticism (and I'm being picky!) is that in my opinion, the radio key lock should also activate the folding wing mirrors. I've had a few near-misses with pedestrians/cyclists/cars as you have to manually fold them in via a button before leaving the car. Overall a great car!

    My car

    I am an ex bus driver and hired this car to tour the length and breadth of the UK while over on holiday from Australia. I absolutely love it. Best car l have driven in its class. Nice high ride, attractive body shape, and a nice sweet spot in 3rd gear when accelerating - Goes like a rocket, found it very comfortable, suited my every purpose, and the only car in its class which didn't start my sciatica off. Love it so much I am making enquiries to purchase one on my return to Australia. Yep, love it, love it, love it!!!

    My car

    What a funny little car it is, quite well equipped but strange to drive with little feedback from the steering, I have had an auto version for a week now whilst my car is in the body shop and the worst thing about the car is despite being half the weight of mine and having an engine less than half the size is only slightly more economical around town.

    My car

    My wife and I were in Scotland on Holiday in May 2014 and hired a car to do a three-day road trip from Edinburgh to Inverness, to Oban and back to Glasgow. We were given a brand new Diesel-powered Vauxhall Mokka.

    Upon seeing the car, my first thoughts were "this looks good". Now...before I continue, let me say that I have been driving for 35 years, all of that in Western Australia, a large proportion of which has been in conditions requiring a 4x4, so I've had considerable driving experience on which to base my comments.

    Now back to the Mokka: How should I put this ? It has got to be hands down the WORST new vehicle I have ever driven. Completely underpowered and way too over-geared. It was downright hazardous to drive in my opinion. That's right. I thought it was unsafe. Why? It would stall at the drop of a hat; completely underpowered, even at highway cruising speed when one did not change down at the optimal moment and the engine had to lug *slightly*...it would stall. Heck, it would not even reverse up the slightest incline without considerable riding of the clutch!

    My guess is that the 6 speed gearbox is on board to try and compensate for an engine that is woefully inadequate for the size of car. That's enough for me. I won't even bother reviewing cosmetics etc. as in my opinion the vehicle does not even pass muster. Sorry Vauxhall, but I would not drive this car even if it were given to me. I couldn't imagine ever forking over the kind of serious cash needed to
