"Great used buy!"

Bought mine over 2 years ago with 32k miles on clock for £2k less £400 trade-in for old banger. One of the best bargains I've ever had. I use mine for local drives (up to 30 miles) & never had a hiccup.Boot is cavernous (esp with back folded flat - can get 2 sets of golf clubs + trolleys in easily). Gets about 38 mpg which is ok for such a roomy car. It's a bit cramped in the back especially for 2 adults but ok for kids. I use it as a 2 or 3 seater and load lugger. All I've spent on it is 2 services and 2 new tyres for the front. If you're looking for a cheap reliable car, get one!
