Well it's been 5 years and 40k since I bought my brand new Antara
Just been Motd and serviced last week with no issues
It's been faultless for the time I've had it. It's done everything that I've needed it to do from lugging the family around to fighting through horrendous snow
Too many people are quick to give these cars a bad name but no car is perfect

Always nice to hear from a satisfied owner Griffin. Did you avoid the supermarket diesel in the long run? How did the Falken tyres work out, what kind of mileage have you got out of them?

I've always used Esso diesel and added wynns injector cleaner once a year. Got 18k from the front tyres which isn't too bad

I've got the factory Hankooks on mines, there's about 4.5mm tread left on the front and about 5,5 left on the rears at 17,000 miles. I'll be changing themn front to rear shortly.

Meant to ask, what kind of pressure do you have to keep the 20" ones at?
