The overall performance is nothing to get excited about, but after eight to ten seconds, it can reach a top speed of 100mph!
The handling is acceptable, but power steering is a must, especially when parking the car.
The seats are very comfortable (they feel very like armchairs) and the interior offers quite a lot of space, even for medium-sized people who have to sit in the back seat.
The boot is reasonably large, with 396 litres of luggage space. The only two bad points for the boot are that the loading sill is far too high and that half the normal size of the boot is taken up by the fuel tank, which is placed behind the back seat!
Like most old French cars, this car has some typically French quirks (remember, the following is in a right-hand drive car) - the ignition switch is located at the left side of the steering wheel, along with the wiper switch; there are two stalks at the right side of the steering wheel - the short one is for the direction indicators, and the long one is for the lights and the horn!
Operating the steering column controls (especially the light switch) takes a bit of getting used to. If you turn the end of the switch 90 degrees and move it down one position the dashboard lights and parking lights come on. Move it down once more and the dip beam lights come on, and when you move it down again the main beam lights come on.
I'll never sell this car as it has a lot of character as well as being cheap to run and easy to maintain.
