    Tell us what you think about your car?
    When it works, great, but not relaxing because constantly expecting the next issue to appear. Good size for two of us and easy to live with on urban, motorway and rural driving. Fast enough but not too fast. Lots of proper buttons and switches so touchscreen only for entertainment and information.
    What's the one thing you like most about your car?
    Proper buttons!
    If you could improve one thing, what would it be?
    Make it more reliable - sort the coolant issue out properly.
    Would you recommend the car to a friend?
