The 52 plate is staying. I must agree that the newer model of Scenic doesn't appear as well built. Why is it that modern cars are all gimmicks - auto headlights, wipers, electronic brakes etc... Have manufacturers reached a peak with car build and handling and can only tempt buyers this way? I use a new VW Passat as a works car and the electronic parking brake is a nightmare never mind the auto wipers that work when its only light rain but don't if it tipping down. I woul like to think that drivers can manage their own wipers and lights! Mind you the amount of folk driving round in bad weather or at night without lights maybe not.
