Still on my learning curve.
Added: 22nd of November 2018
The first top end car I've owned for years I was impressed with the reviews used cars of this type seemed to be getting. Firstly I was bamboozled by the push button auto handbrake and now I've managed to do a sort of mental checklist for getting it to work consistently. I wouldn't want a pull handbrake in this car would clutter up the centre console. The fuel economy figures - well I wouldn't take a bet on the published figures being even occasionally attainable but even on the urban journeys I'm getting over 40mpg. The turbo lag is quite noticeable but I'm not complaining it will still give you that warm push against the back of your seat with the revs not climbing much above 3000rpm -enough to get you into and out of trouble in most driving situations. The speed limiter excellent for long stretches of 50mph motorway driving and two clicks of the button removes the limit. I'm not a cruise control user - though it functions well on this car. It is astonishingly comfortable but try and take a few minutes with the stationary car to adjust the seat for yourself. Changing whilst driving not easy with the seat buttons positioned where they are, once they are right the comfort over a long drive is excellent. They are longer than you expect and the average Tesco parking slot can barely cope with the length. Even shunted right up against the car in front the car still sticks its rear end into the traffic lane tempting a pat on the bum from passing car park users. The parking sensors well up to the job of taking the guesswork [or binoculars] you'll otherwise need to prevent the odd scuff. Multi storey car parking is very challenging and the high kerbs can [and have] put scuff marks on the plastic sill - I now avoid multi storey parking and expensive bod repair bills! Overall I'm really pleased with my small leap of faith here. The car is rewarding to drive, seemingly reliable for everyday motoring and a possible keeper for me who is a change junkie when it comes to cars. Happy driving and may you still cling to your wallet if anything does go wrong!
