Very pleased that the car is to your liking Mikenorthern_mike wrote:Well, all I can report is that the car, is of course, exactly as Chris described it, drives spot on and has averaged 44mpg over the 100 miles or so I've done in it down to Hartshead Moor services on the M62.
You'll find that when you check the actual MPG that the computer under-reads by around 4/5 MPG. I've always found this and the previous owner also mentioned the same, seems to be a trait of the car. So my guess is its done nearer 50 by that point.
... It's really rather nice and well worth the trip. I particularly like the economy, the cruise that Chris fitted, and the aux audio input lead poking out the rear ashtray.
Only fault I can find is, as is normal, the wheels need balancing. I know Chris tends not to go as fast as I do so won't have noticed.. No big deal, the rest of the car is spot on
It has been my sisters car for the last five years though I did drive it freqently as its always lived here. I do tend to push on in my cars when the time is right but in that C5 I usually sat around 70-80 on motorways. They are centreless wheels, a great design!
No problem Mike, just thankful that you like it and that its found a good home. Its been one of the best buys I've made and I'm sure it will prove the same for you.northern_mike wrote:Forgot to add, it was valeted this morning and had an oil and filter last week.
