I have had this car for several years and am very happy with it. There have been a couple of problems such as the water pump collapsing and the clutch slave cylinder lever (so I'm told) breaking but my local mechanic fixed these for less than I was expecting. I find it very comfortable to drive on long journeys but I think the children would like to be able to alter the angle of the rear back rests. The dash board is pretty basic but functional although the switches for the rear wash and wipe are rather out of the way to the right of and below the steering wheel.They are out of easy view and I have to look for them when I need them to make sure I get the right button. Also the roof rails would be more useful if they were longer. They are shorter than the roof so any long items on the roof bars such as my long roof box prevent the rear door from being fully opened. Other than these points I do like the car and will certainly be looking at another Carens when I change vehicles.
