Re: About to buy 147 Couple of Easy Questions
I use mine to go to and from work and drop off my son at nursery. He fits easily in the back in his car seat. Not sure what buggy you have - we have two, a Jane 3 wheeler which will fit in with the parcel shelf off, and a Quinny Zap which fits in easily with the parcel shelf on. My son loves the car because it goes faster than his dads!!!
As for driving to and from work, it depends what type of roads. If its all town driving, I wouldnt recommend it. I commute to work through town and its drinks petrol (15 minute journey to work) - on longer journeys out of town, the petrol consumption is obviously better.
Having said all that, I wouldnt have another 147 if you paid me! I have had nothing but trouble with mine (some of my woes have been posted on this forum) and the repairs are expensive. I have had other, much older cars, that have been a lot less trouble to run and keep on the road. Its a beautiful car, and drives like a dream when its working properly but I'm soon getting rid of mine (once it has been repaired again!) and to be honest, I can't wait. Obviously, it could be that I have been unlucky and I'm sure there are thousands of other people who are more than happy with their 147 so please dont let me put you off (or your wife!!).
