Your Quotes

“Let down by poor economy and the inability of the second row of seats to fold into the floor. The good quality interior is also ruined by squeaks and rattles.”

Mr Sean Taylor - Northumberland

“Good and comfortable, economical for an CVR automatic – 54mpg on a run around town.”

Mr John Desborough – West Sussex

Mr Philip Taylor Monmouthshire - Worcestershire

“Overall car is OK but the battery continually goes flat but the dealer insists there is nothing wrong so the fault is still not fixed. In for the fourth time now.”

Mr Maurice Porter - Hants

Mr John Rowlands – Merthyr Tydfill

“A great car to drive and very practical. Unfortunately let down by poor after sales service and questionable build quality.”

Mr Sean Taylor – Northumberland
