A Little surprised
Added: 12th of October 2013
I purchased this car when my previous car died. It wasn't as if I had much choice in the matter - I needed a car and this one was for sale with the right length of MOT and service history. Having only owned it a few months I must say I am more than surprised by the performance. It's very nippy, has enough power and acceleration to make driving a pleasure. It tackles hills fairly well and handles well in different road conditions. A little prone to drift on corners when moving at speed, but that's maybe because it isn't as heavy as my last car (a Rover 75 estate). I miss the suspension of my old car as on this car it's a little 'solid' making speed bumps (when taken at the correct speed) feel a lot more of an obstacle for example - in terms of feeling bumped around. I am a big guy so one if the concerns was room behind the drivers seat, Again I was a little surprised there, it is roomier than it looks. Have driven from Cornwall to London a couple of times i can say that long journeys are OK and the car can maintain a steady speed. Am currently averaging 120 + miles on £20 of petrol - this is a better way of thinking about consumption for me.
