2009-reg Diesel, Owner for less than a year

Had an issue with the diesel particle filter which stopped the car working properly and was told it was due to my "driving style". interestingly I've been driving like this for approx 20 years so maybe it's the cars suitability. luckily he car is under warranty or I would have been very upset. The depreciation is pretty horrific and the cost of fuel these days is not exactly helping.

Car off road for 2.5weeks necessitating the fitting of replacement differential electronic module and automatic on-demand coupling. now abs/dstc warning lights coming on intermittenttly. Most of driving is in town and short runs, averaging 32mpg. on a recent long motorway/country roads journey this rose to a most acceptable 42mpg.

Automatic on demand coupling had to be replaced requiring the car to be off the road for three weeks. wiring loom for abs/dstc wiring loom on one wheel had to be replaced - four days off the road. Overall fuel consumption could be better. insurance and road fund licence is also expensive.

It as been spot on on two 17 day hoilays to south of france and back trips up to fort willam and back same day best car ever so far. Only fuel and tyres so far with 30,000 on the clock great !!

2010-reg Diesel

No breakdowns, only 1 problem with electronics, module replaced. Disappointing fuel consumption on local roads, poor when towing caravan, reasonable on motorways (38mpg).

Nothing has gone wrong to date. Fairly expensive to run due to poor mpg, however I knew this when I brought the car at it is used for towing a large caravan.

Nothing to report. Insurance through iam surety is fine. mpg remains steady no matter how I drive the car and when towing a caravan.

Nothing has gone wrong since owning the car. For a 2.4 diesel, 38mpg average is not bad. on a motorway it can hit 50mpg.
