      Great family car, if you can afford to run it!

      I had this vehicle for just over 1 year. At the time of buying i was unsure whether to get a 2.0L diesel or the 3.0L Sport. I ended up getting a really good deal on the sport so thought i'll go for the bigger engine. Petrol/Diesel - me being female - doesn't really bother me!! Well, that was until i purchased this car. My lord its so thirsty!! At the time of selling the car i had nearly reached 9000 miles and was getting 17 mpg. I thought in time this would get better - unfortuantely it didn't. (I travel 11 miles to work, mostly in traffic)

      On a plus side, even though the car is expensive to run, its a lovely car. If you're a driver who travels lots on the motorway you would probably get 25 mpg, which isn't great but its barable. The car is the sport version, the suspension is a little hard but you would expect this from a sports car. The other bonus is the cars an Automatic!! I was never bothered about driving a manual car before but i love the automatic, you aim and fire, a trained monkey would be able to drive one!

      Inside the car is so practical if you have a family. There is lots of room, my partner is over 6 ft and when he drives it he is comfortable. There is lots of leg room in the back, you could very easily fit a baby seat and have two children along side in the rear. The boot is also very spacious - we go camping sometimes and you can get lots in the boot. You also have a retractable cover that pulls over the top of the boot so prying eyes are unable to see what is in the boot.

      My advise would be, check the 2.0L diesel out, although i loved my car, it would have been much more practical for myself to have a diesel.

      I also lost quite abit of money when i sold this car, i know cars depreciate but.... apparently they are face lifting this model this year or next so i jumped ship before i lost more money!
