Summary:

Stylish, Japanese-made family wagon

Faults:

The rear park assist kept beeping when reversing, even if nothing was there. It was an intermittent fault, so was very difficult for the dealer to find.

General Comments:

Overall a very stylish, comfortable car. The only downside was the noise. The roads in New Zealand have a very rough surface to shed water, and this car made any long trips quite tiring, by transferring all road noise into the cab. Around the city, with smoother roads, I'm sure it would be fine.

I bought this car for my wife to use, as it was one of the few family cars, that at the time, had full curtain airbags.
