You'll love it!!
I had the 2.2 JTS and although it was a lovely car I'd always wanted the V6. travelling an average of 400-500 miles a week the less than 20mpg always put me off but the Q2 made it sound a little more reasonable and last June I finally got the 3.2 Ti - best thing ever. It's true what everyone is saying to you, the engine sound is so addictive
Beautiful to drive in the Ti spec, the road holding is awesome and it just looks like a car worth at least twice the price.
Up until today it has been virtually faultless but the drivers heated seat wasn't working (I think) so I thought I'd book it in to have it sorted, get them to do the four wheel tracking as I'd just had new tyres fitted (14,000 miles - not too bad I thought) and I wanted them to run an engine diagnostic test as the fuel consumption changed literally overnight from an average 24.5mpg (driven excitedly) suddenly to a steady 22.4mpg driving much steadier due to the wet and icy weather. Strangely no matter how soft or hard I drive the car it hardly varies. No matter how hard i try I can't get it to 23mpg.
Anyway the bad news came when I rang to see if it was ready and it's not safe to drive - low front suspension arm or something is damaged and the track rod is bent, £500 just for the parts
- FECKING POTHOLES!!!!
The roads around here have been terrible, as have most places but my journey home is usually cross country which in the pitch black has been an assault course and I do know of at least four extremely deep potholes (we're talking Grand Canyon size) that I've hit at speed, three on the same night. No chance of claiming off the council due to the weather just wondering whether it's worth claiming off the insurance.
At the moment I'm stuck in a Fiat Punto
and am not a happy bunny
But enough of my woes, enjoy your V6, forget the fuel and just keep an eye on the uneven tyre wear the Ti is famous for.
Don't you wish you'd got one the same colour as mine
