2011-reg Diesel, Owner for 1 to 3 years

Not ticking over properly roadside garages coleraine serviced the car but is no different automatic hand brake came on by its self when changing down to 2nd gear rattles etc and when you want to get the front parking sensors working you have to put the car in reverse vauxhall coleraine say this is normal more than can be said for them. Nowhere near the mpg advertised even though I drive very light footed.

My car starts every time in all weather. it is good in ice and as it has a snow button which is good. As everyone that drives I wish the government would lower petrol taxes.

It's been an excellent workhorse and has never failed to start first time and hasn't broken down once. Cheap to service and sails through MOT. What more can you ask for?

No aesthetic qualities at all, but easy to drive, fantastically roomy and very versatile. If they'd made it pretty they'd have had a world beater.
