Hi there Ottoman, I can only speak for myself, but, I've had my car since July. I've covered 9,000 miles in that timeframe though!
My reason for choosing this car was space, gadgets, economy and price. I didn't need 7 seats, and preferred a huge boot.
My car has (touch wood) been easy to live with - inside you would hardly know it was a diesel, lively enough (if you manually overide the autobox), and generally quite frugal.
I plan on keeping mine covered by a private warranty - just in case.
It does give you a good buzz seeing another on the road, such is the exclusivity which was guaranteed by the low sales.
A very good all-rounder!
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
Currently in VelSatisfied's garage:
