Be very wary over servicing costs on this car.
It is going to cost you a bundle over the life of the car.

Notwithstanding it has less power than my lawnmower it is very economical on fuel.

It was recording better than 60 mpg on a run showing how gently it was driven and yet it still 'demanded' a service after only 11 months and 10600 miles.

Cost nearly £300.00.

During research prior to taking the thing on I found no mention on of yearly services and my understanding was 15000 miles between visits.

So over a three year contract hire instead of one service it will need three and one of those, I understand is over £500.00

That's a minimum of £1000 over three years.

Its back to BMW diesels for me.

Be warned.
