Thanks
Love the car, been down to get a spare key today. Dealer is paying but wanted me to sort it, £160! I commented on how canyou lose a key in four years. He said they only come with one key from new. That can't be right, can it

It looks like you have cloned my car
, same model and colour. FYI, mine is a 2008 and it came with 2 keys. Welcome to the forum, I'm sure you will love your new car.

Thanks all, Really pleased with it, really find it strange that there are some very negative comments about them. Minor niggles is the "get you home" tyre and the postioning of the heater knob, feet, head and feet ect, you cant see half of it but will soon get to know the positioning and anyhow the climate control I suspect will control it.

Yet to tow with it yet, I had a 2003 Cherokee 2.5 diesel before. It would tow the caravan up the side of a mountain but stability wise
anything over 50mph and you could really feel the caravan start to sway. I think it because it had such soft suspension setup at the rear, for off road use. I once had a Cherokee owner come over as I was trying to reverse the caravan on to the pitch, interrupt me asking if the Cherokee was stable towing because he couldn't go over 50mph with out it trying to sway. he thought there was something wrong with it. Looking at some of the comments on the forum the Antara is a stable tug



keep you posted.

Hi and welcome all new cars Come with two keys talking through a hole in his head, it's them that have lost the second key more like its about £40 for a new one trying to rip you off I would say

We have towed a 1500Kg Swift all over with ours and the Antara is great, very stable. We did a four week tour of Europe with the caravan last year and it didn't miss a beat. We even managed to set off speed camera at 70 in France as I didn't realise the speed creeping up. Haven't had the letter through the post though
