54-reg Diesel, Owner for 1 to 3 years

Usual diesel noise up to 30mph then transforms into almost petrol like refinement - and - 54mpg achieved on a cross country long run. Considering it is the 2.4 litre (D5) which is getting a little bit long in the tooth it is superb. Wonderful used car bargain.

Excellent for what I want it to do - lots of gadgets, easy driving, superb practicality and stands out from the "ordinary" Executive cars. Only black mark is that I have to visit fuel pumps a little more often than I'd like!

Since I have had the car I have only had to have done wishbone near side.mot it goes through with out any items marked to attend to. For a 2.4 engine it gives me miles per gallon with comfort.

First class ride, very comfortable, tows the caravan with ease, a little expensive to run would prefer more M.P.G. Dealer has been good but could be more cost effective
