We've not tested one, but these vehicles are built on commercial vehicle chassis designed to do 200,000 miles in five or six years then be disposed of. The base vehicles are not designed to do 3000 miles a year and spend six months of the year sitting unused on a driveway. All sorts of problems from rusted brakes, blocked DPFs, flatspotted tyres, flat batteries and snapped timing belts have been reported by our users. If you do buy one, ensure you use it regularly and don't simply leave it parked up for half the year.
