Your Quotes

“Great fun to drive, comfortable, effortless-distance cruiser, with ability to transport four adults and all their baggage with no problem. Fuel consumption not perfect, but too much fun to drive conservatively. Servicing by main ford dealer is good value, although consumables such as tyres not cheap. Intending to purchase same model for next car, but probably higher spec.”

Mr William Wetherill - Stockton On Tees

“Reliable, practical but a little boring.”

Mr Keith Pickering - West Midlands
