2009-reg Diesel, Owner for 3 to 5 years

The car as a whole has been extremely reliable with the only negatives being some of the internal electrics, which I am pleased to say has not affected the cars ability to get me to my destination safely. I dis spec the 19 inch wheels and also buy top spec tyres so at ł250 per tyre (michelin pilot 3) this does inflate the running costs some what. I bought these as a further way to save fuel as they are green x branded but have not really seen any difference.

Fantastic ride, handling and practicality. Build quality is absolutely first class and the cabin is fresh, well laid out and everything falls easily to hand. the quality of the interior finish is faultless and the car feels extremely well put together.
A couple of electrical niggles have been resolved under warranty by a very helpful dealer and the ownership experience has been a pleasure so far.

The car overall is as good as was anticipated however it has been plagued with minor problems:
Fabric rear seats installed at production when they should have been leather.
Still waiting for the driver's heated seat to be repaired.
Internal door trim not installed correctly at production.
Wing mirrors do not always automatically return to correct position after they have dipped for reversing.

Car has been plagued by a series of issues having to have new inlet manifold rail, new steering rack and the flywheel failed 3 months ago. it has also had three episodes of going into limp mode, the first taking a month to solve and the last happening on the acceleration lane of a busy motorway. the front tyres are also only lasting 10,000 miles

It has never broken down but had a number of small faults, such as rattling parcel shelf, squeaking on cold and after long trips, squeaking fan, ecu issues, heated rear screen. The car is what I would expect to run, average cost of servicing every 20k at around 200. good price for discs and pads.

OK for what it is, although new has rattles and creaks and is starting to pick up recalls. Paint is very thin in microns and easily marked. Was difficult to get accurate spec of cars as manufacturer abd dealers didn't seem to know whats was being produced when

No problems have arisen. As it is a large car run on deisel it costs more than say a smaller car. this is the only car I saw that would accomodate a wheelchair with a large shop. deisel is too pricy - not the car's fault.

No real problems, on collection the steering did not feel posative. two new front tyres cured the proplem. I thought perhaps the economy might be better, but there again it is driven at 70mph on motorways.

Although I do minimum miles my car is 100% reliable and a joy to drive. My car has a 1.4 ss turbo engine so it is quite frugal on fueland because of the evo the road tax is a good price.

Not a single problem in the first year. this is the first new car to be this good. As expected. the long warante 10000 miles should ensure low running costs over many years.
