Odd little faults that appear and then disappear, like the scream from the rear speakers which sounded like something was being killed. It never reocurred and was not traced to anything. Or the odd warning buzzer which goes sounds occasionally when the key is removed from the ignition - same thing. She's and old lady with odd habits occasionally!

3 years old and owned for 6 months - only one minor problem so far. Battery drained slowly - traced to faulty amplifier on Bose stereo upgrade - replaced under warranty.

Never had a problem that was not completely resolved with annual service. Minor problems (e.g. clutch not responding as well as might be hoped) resolved at minimal cost at service

Spacious and comfortable, effortless to drive long distances. Parking spaces are suddenely a little on the short side. Reliable thus far, and feels very solid on the road. Not the fastest, but definately the best looking estate of this age.

This is a very good car, it never let me down. You might say that is a 2 litre and it is slow, but you can only drive at 70 and it has no problem reaching that speed and passes. (I usually take it to 110 and drive all day at that speed)

Overall - pretty good; only significant problem was failure of the mass air-flow sensor which took a main dealer two sessions to identify and fix!

I had a 2 month period where the Air Conditioning Unit & Turbo unit stopped working, as well as a leak through the dashboard. Total cost was roughly Ł1500. However, since then it has been fine.
