I have had this as a company car for the last three years. It's a comfortable car that handles very nicely. It does not have a good quality feel to it, the interior is a bit cheap feeling, but it has never let me down. It is no rocket ship, but goes ok once it is up a running, but off the line it's takes some winding up. As an estate it is very practical, with a good shaped boot. Fuel economy suffers a lot in the winter if it's cold and you are using the heated seats or windscreen. Average mpg is mid fifties, but does drop to 50 mpg during the winter. The paint quality is poor, it's been in twice under warranty as the paint flaked and peeled off the sills and from the bumper. I never thought I would like a ford, but it's a nice car that does everything you need, it's not very exciting but as a family car it's great. I much preferred the Octavia I had before though.
