Not the vehicle I would have chosen had everything else been equal.In fact, it was more by accident than design that I actually went to look at one. I knew its performance was mediocre and its running costs somewhat higher than other similar vehicles - the very reasons why I had no intention of buying one. BUT I have found it very comfortable, easy to drive, it meets my requirements in terms of load space, etc and , to date, it has been utterly reliable. Nor does it feel as claustrophobic as some similar vehicles with their very narrow side and rear windows - perhaps I should point out, however that I have been used to driving HGVs with their very deep windows.It is also well equipped, although I would consider no spare wheel a shortcoming together with the fact that it cannot be locked into four wheel drive - makes a difference setting off on very slippery gradients. I would also consider the warranty top class. The deciding factor, however, was the overall financial package which more than compensated for the higher running costs!!
