Hi all,
New to the site, just a quick hello.

I've had my antara 2.2 with 4x4 now for 2 months and have already clocked up 5.5k.
Will be asking about for some little tips shortly, but though I'd better have a look around as I'm sure none of my questions will be very original :)

Yeah, so far so good... I got the car for commuting and for the occasional drive across large civiIs construction sites, I drive approx 150 miles a day. It's proved pretty competant off road, nothing to challenging but some pretty muddy stuff, limited axel articulation has meant i get 3 wheel moments but that adds to the fun. Hill decent has also been used for real one or twice.I've few complaints thus far. Ground clearance at the front is shocking I've already pulled the air dam off, but I like the look of the car without it so won't be replacing. It also frustrates me that you need to manually turn on the front parking sensors, unless I'm missing a trick. I'm getting a regular 37mpg out of it, which still seems to be on the up, very good as my Insignia is averaging 23!
More to come soon

Welcome to the forum Mike.

The front parking sensors do come on after you have engaged reverse gear.

Great if you are parallel parking not so great if you drive into a space. They also come on automatically when you start the car.
