So a while since I posted about the Antara.
The Good.Well after running her for around 10 k miles I have averaged around 38.2 mpg over all, she feels like she could pull up tree trunks with all the torque. She is comfy on along run, the cruise control I added is brilliant and I would not do without it, like wise the RacePro Chip I fitted is great.
The Bad. Failed EGR and failed VX dealer not recognising it and believing me that there was a fault....
The engine sounding a bit agricultural, but then again she pulls so well in all gears I can live with that.
The Ugly. Rattles in the cabin that come and go when they feel like it, the poor boot space Ok I used to have a Zafira that for space was excellent, but compared with other SUV's its a bit tight with the high lip to get the old dog in...
I like it though and although it doesn't do what I intended (fit two big dogs in) I get round that and will keep her for a while yet. In September when the warranty runs out I will have to extend it as the repair costs will mean I will have to sell a kidney to get anything fixed!!
Oh and the VERY VERY UGLY thanks to our Government treating Diesel owners akin to war criminals who like nothing more than putting babies on stakes, the value of 2nd hand diesels has fallen so the resale value which was already low is dropping like a stone. Yesterday a visit to the hospital meant the car park charge was almost higher than the value of the car
