Decent

Bought this as I wanted a raised driving position to see the road ahead, more space at the front, and luggage capacity - at a good price (£9999 + £100 delivery).

I regret not getting the diesel for the extra torque and fuel economy, but apart from that I've been content with this car. I find it comfortable, with plenty of space (it's a boon for moving stuff). Gear-change is notchy (much less smooth than on my old VW Polo) and, as HJ points-out, the A-pillars obscure three-quarter view. I don't like the speed-sensitive wipers. Some body-roll too.

It ceased availability several months' ago - but it was reasonably good value for money, and, at cheap second-hand prices, must be good for comfortable travel and load-lugging. No problems at all yet (8000 m); I hope it proves reliable...

Update after 4 years and 34k:

Have been pleased with the car: only problem since new was failed boot latch so has been fine over admittedly low-ish mileage and no problem with either MOT. Intend to keep for another two years: IF no problems during that time this will have been a good purchase...
