Anyone have one? Can you tell me about the good/bad/uglies?
After huge issues since I bought it I'm finally returning my current car. I test drove one of these today & liked it. Can't really find a similar car that ticks all the boxes in the price range. I'd much rather have a bike with a basket like Miss Marple's anyway, but the kids won't all fit on the handlebar.

I have this car! It has many great features for family use. The boot space is especially amazing.
I did have some issues with expensive windscreen wiper motor repairs (£600+) but I think I was probably unlucky.
The visibility is great so you don't feel like you're driving such a big car.
Any specific questions?

Thanks Pingu. Questions...do you have the diesel version? If so which one? I'm looking at a 1.6 and am hoping for better fuel economy in this one than the lemon I bought.
What are the running costs like - insurance, tax, servicing etc?
I have a similar sized 7 seater already and I thought the drive in this one was really comfy. The only thing I didn't like was that the rear view mirror seemed tiny in comparison to the size of the windscreen!

I have the diesel, I think it's the 1.6 but I'm not good with things like that! I fill up once a month for around £60 and that does around 400 miles I guess. My insurance is about £250 but I have many many years of no claims. I think the car tax is £180
Mine is almost 6 years old, wish I could afford a new one.

I have one too, love it! Our insurance is about £320 but only have a couple of years no claims. We have the 1.6 diesel, it's nearly 3 years old and been ideal for us. The only thing I don't like is the underfloor storage in the back as it rules out lots of Isofix car seats with prop legs!
