Picked up my 2.2 ES on Monday afternoon, so very early days yet!
I traded in a Seat Leon 2.0 140ps, just so you know what I am comparing it with.
So far, so good. Just driving locally, not town, but countryside, I don't seem to be able to get the fuel usage up above about 37mpg, is that normal? Certainly my Seat showed quite a bit more than that.
Gear change I don't find as free and easy as the Seat, it seems to have to be "pulled" out of second to go up into third. Hopefully it will get easier with use.
The Seat had 17" tyres,and it seems to hug the road a bit better than the Honda.
I have had 4 Seat's on the trot, and told the salesman he would do well to drag me away from Seat, and my wife kept on about we would be expecting champagne and flowers if we did the deal.
When we went to pick up the car, we jokingly said, Where's the champagne then?
He said they couldn't run to that. When he took us outside to explain the car to us, when he got to the boot, he opened it up and there was a bottle of cava, (all right not champagne!), a bouquet a flowers and a box of chocolates!! So top marks for the salesman!
