Had the Trax 1.4T LT for over 1,000 miles now and so far am very satisfied, I have seen various reviews criticising the Trax's ride and handling but do not agree, it holds the road well on winding country roads and whilst the ride is on the firm side I don't find it a problem , fuel consumption so far has averaged around 38.5 mpg which has not been unexpected and is I feel satisfactory for a petrol 4 x 4. Acceleration is swift for a 1.4 making overtaking easy, OK you need to use the gearbox to get the best performance but I havent found it unsatifactorily buzzy at high revs. As for value for money, I achieved a decent discount of around £4,500 from the new list price as I purchased the vehicle an ex main dealer demo with only 350 miles on the clock which was in as new condition so the other criticism of the Trax being overpriced has not been an issue for me at least. Overall I feel the given two star rating is an unfair reflection of the reality of ownership.
