if i didn't have to carry tools round in my car for work i'd by a new small car with free road tax can't see why any one who spends most of the time in the car on their own would consider buying a big car. one of those fiat 500 twin air things would do me.

The computer on it is way too complex too. Part went wrong a while back which was 450. More warnings are coming up again now.
