Fantastic car for OAPs. Easy to get in and out of and very good all round visibility. Very economical on fuel. Very versatile interior dead reliable and only requires servicing every 2 years on the milage I now do. Best of all made in England.

A very versatile and practical car, easy to drive, very roomy and economical on fuel. Low speed ride poor eg over speed humps and road imperfections but happy on motorways where it is very stable. It has been very reliable.

Fantastic engine. 1600 twin cam. Very flexible and unbelievable economy. 50+ MPG on a long run. Versatile interior with lots of space. Seats not as comfortable as my last car (Mercedes) but you can't have everything.

57-reg Petrol, Owner for 1 to 3 years

A very reliable car that has met all my requirements. I have no idea about the MPG for the car as I consider that as I have to go from A to B the car needs fuel and I simply fill the tank when it is empty.

Always starts first time, lets me know early about refuelling. Very economical, good mpg, excellent oil, car tax is not too bad and insurance is reasonabole.

57-reg Diesel, Owner for 1 to 3 years

Exactly the right car for me. Best part is the inside which is cleverly designed to be roomy within a relatively small size. Also it is very economical.

Electrical issues with climate control initially but since then all ok. Changed tyres recently to nankang which has increased the fuel efficiency.
