They're generally a good drive, and it's good on space and not bad on running costs.

Boot space is okay, think the Citroen C4 Picasso is better though. It's great with what it offers for the price but if you're looking at mainly boot space, you're best going for the Picassoo.

We've previously had the car in for review and found it very spacious and the boot size is probably something that you would go for

We have a C-Max and so far (fingers crossed) its been very reliable. Its a comfy ride and the boot is large. We need a large boot to cart DD's stuff to uni. I wish we'd gone for a diesel though as our 1.8 petrol is a bit thirsty when just doing short trips. Longer trips, and it averages around 43 miles a gallon.

Proud owner of a petrol Xmas and love it although agree a 6th gear would be brilliant. We recently swapped our 2nd car a diesel, wouldn't buy another as no one could tell us how or why fumes were coming into the car despite visiting various garages, but the upshot was all the mechanics felt a diesel was really good for long distances but as we just pootled around town, a petrol would have been better!

We're on our second one (both bought used) and love them. Cheap (ish) to run, a nice high driving position, loads of leg room and good boot space.

I've got an 11 yr old one, diesel...I quite like it.

The boot isn't as big as I think it should be for the size of car...if that makes sense? But it's still pretty big. (I was actually looking for an estate, but it was a bargain, so I grabbed it).

It's ok to drive, can be a bit slow to pull away, but other than that it's ok.

Loads of room inside though, 5 tall adults can go in it no problem.

It's cheap to run, even with the age of it and fairly cheap for repairs...and it seems to be pretty indestructable, which is nice, lol.

I'd have another when it finally dies.

Best car I've ever owned! Love it! X
