Absolutely brilliant


No faults.

General Comments:

Good, economical & comfortable long distance driver. I am very pleasantly surprised with the economy; 50+MPG at motorway speeds, 60+ at lower speed limits. Urban use never below 50MPG. It has used no oil in 22000 miles.

I take it to eastern & southern Germany every year with 400 miles in a day; an easy & comfortable drive. It is a great load/dog carrier, my 2 large dogs have loads of room, even with the rear seats up.

Tyre wear is very light, I reckon 24-25000 miles out of the front tyres, & double for the rear (tread depth measured at 22000 miles).

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
