An amazing car

Owned this car for nearly a year now and I have to say it is one of the most rewarding cars to drive, the amount of power from the engine at any revs is amazing.... I still feels like it has all 112 French stallions galloping happily. The engine just pulls in any gear, it'll happily do 40 in 5th going uphill... foot down and it still pulls. Admittedly the electrics aren't great but then you don't buy a French car expecting them to be in all honesty. A/C never worked but then that's what windows are for which all do work. Alarm went after 8 months of owning it but still locks and deadlocks perfectly. Car has amazing road holding especially if you get the tyres they put on the GTI-6. Also as it is the meridian it has half leather seats which are a sort of bucket seat design which hug you around every corner. It does have one flaw though... it was made when petrol prices weren't a concern so the 34mpg at best is a bit expensive at the moment.

So to summarise.

Amazing engine
Very comfortable
Brilliant road holding and cornering

Electrics aren't great
Fuel economy is a bit pricey.


You can tell they're good cars though just by the amount that are still on the roads given that they stopped manufacturing them 10 years ago. Some are even 18 years old and still going strong.
