All in all, I am very impressed by this car, and would recommend it to everyone


Absolutely nothing! The car was bought in October 2008 brand new so it would be very disappointing if something wrong had happened so far.

General Comments:

The car looks great, sporty, both from the outside and inside, doesn't have that "van" look like some other MPV's on the market.

I couldn't believe the spaciousness of the boot when I first got in the car. Sitting in the back seat, and I am 187cm tall, there must be at least 20cm between my knees and the front seat that I have adjusted to fit a person of my height.

The trunk is enormous, I have no other words to describe it (ours has got 5 seats, did not go with 7 seat option). No need for Thule car rack when going on vacations!

The 6 speed manual transmission is precise and matches the engine perfectly.

2.5T power plant is cheerful, smooth and powerful. 220HP and 320Nm of torque at low revs will burn tires and rule the city streets, as well as the highway.

Would like to have had the automatic parking brake as standard in Titanium when I was ordering the car.

Voice control and blue tooth help me keep my hands on the wheel and off the phone and CD charger/radio.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
