It's a very practical car, ideal for grandparents visiting their Children & grandchildren. You can get that piece of furniture in for them, then put all the seats up and go for lunch somewhere without having to take two cars. It is easy to get out of when you get older and less flexible as the seat height is high. As all the seats are high everyone can see where they're going and don't get car sick. It's probably the most practical car I've ever had and considering it's size and height handles very well indeed, a lot better than our previous P reg astra with lighter steering and flatter cornering. Altogether a very able car.

It's a bit of a paradox , I would say it is the best car and the worst car I've ever owned. The many plusses (automatic,seven seat practicality,ride height,traction control, electric windows all round etc) have in the end been negated by poor suspension, niggly electrical and mechanical faults eg. EGR valve/throttle body, door electrics, aircon faults, dooors inoperable plus various other faults amounting to £3000 of bills in 5 years.

It's really a rebadged Opel but the build quality is suprisingly good. I've never had a Vauxhall/Opel before and and it's impressed me far more that I expected. It's the Elegance so has all the extras and has been extremely practical though obviously boring. I'm 6ft3 so am also impressed by the comfort on long journeys.

It has been practical with having four children from ages 11 years down to 2 years. It has got enough room for every day living and when we go on holiday. The car its self is not too big on the exterior for ease of parking unlike some have the inside space but seem larger outside.

Bought a Zafira Diesal (150BHP) and have been incredibly impressed with the performance and fuel economy. It is huegly practical, the Comfort is very good and it looks great too! Has surpassed my expectations and previous Vauxhall experiences .

Really practical and surprisingly economical - I really didn't want one of these initially, but it has really won me over with its economy and comfort as well. It has had a few issues, but hey, it is nearly 10 years old and covered 100k!

For a car aimed at families it has very poor storage capacity as standard.
The standard equipment level is very poor.
The read seats and middle seats are very thinly upolstered and will be uncomfortable on a long journey.

Does what it says on the tin. I'm not a car freak, nor do I see a car as a status symbol or expression of my manhood. It's a tool and should be robust, well made, practical and very cost effective.

it's good. Its the xp pack version with the 18 inch wheels so the ride is expected to be a bit hard. The only problem with the brakes were the heat shields rubbing on the disc that i fixed myself.

Very practical and has live up to my expectations. The only annoying issue is that the front windscreen side support creates a blind spot when going round the corner

as a 1.8 the Engine feels under powered and could do with a smoother, and less harsh engine noise, with more linear acceleration affording more drivability.
