04-reg Diesel, Owner for More than 5 years

It is very reliable,steering is well weighted and precise,first class.Engine 1.4 Turbo diesel is a bit intrusive,however it is very quick away from traffic lights,junctions,roundabouts ect judging by what I see in my mirror and I'm not a boy racer.Semi-auto gearbox is a bit slow changing up,coming down the box is fine (I prefer changing gear myself) though in general it's fine.
Practicallity is fine most days without having to put rear seats down,however with 4/5 people in the car going on holiday,luggage has to go on the roof rack.
The car has lived up to my expectations and then some. Finances were uppermost in my decision in buying the car,but if things change I will buy my dream car a Land Rover Discovey.

It's only just 3 years old not had any issues with it. Feel I do have to fill up quite a bit - due to the fuel dial being digital can never tell how much is left. light comes on early only ever takes 30ish litres.

A practical little car with a styling I initially liked and thought a sensible choice (it's a Capella) - now I think it has all the glamour of a surgical boot! It does not have the "personality" of my old 626!

In the 2 years since new it has not broken down, but had to take it back as there was an oil leak, and now it is making a noise in the back. For a small car, I would expect it to have an mpg of 35 or more.

100% satisfaction. only one small hiccup when the boot switch failed just after it came out of warranty. I spend about ł35 petrol each week to commute to and from work, go shopping and visit friends.

Apart from flat tyres and replacing the windscreen wipers, nothing has ever gone wrong with it. Petrol, servicing, mot costs - that's it really.

Hasn't let me down at any time yet. As long as you are really light on the gas it behaves ecconomically = very sensitive gas peddle.
