A highly economical, stylish, comfortable high performance diesel
I had to replace drivers side track rod end, wishbone, drive, and steering rack, all bushings where replaced as well as passengers side track rod end and wishbone. in saying this it was no fault of the car. An argument with a speeding VW passat not advised especially not three days after purchase. There has been no faults other than what the accident caused.
First and foremost this car is extremely economical 50+mpg in the city.
This CD spec is fully loaded no real difference in this and the CDX the velour trim is extremely comfortable and the wooden trim nice to sit in.
Full electrics make things a lot easier especially when your children like to put their windows down in the depths of winter (easily locked).
As for a diesel this car has great performance and although some people will tell you they handle like a bag of cats my experience is completely the opposite. It really does handle every bit as well as my brothers 2000 Vectra.
O.k. my only gripe is that it isn't as comfortable as my Volvo (which I still own) but then the Volvo doesn't do 55mpg.
I would personally recommend this car to any one considering, it really is super dooper.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
