Croma after 1 month

Just thought I would put a post in. Had my 55 plate Croma for a month now. Bought at 108k miles. Now 1500 miles later. Bought for 1650 plus my W plate Marea. So cheap as it gets. And the Croma is just great! Averaging 48mpg over the past 1500 miles. It is the 8v multijet elezanza model. Really refined, performance is fine for an everyday car. Comfy, quiet and as practical as it gets. Quieter than my 3.0 Subaru Outback. Wish they did a 4wd Croma and I would be sorted.

Ultimately I would like an auto version but I refuse to pay the road tax for the auto, so stuck with playing with the damn gears all the time.

Highly underated car. More fool the UK market

So you drove it then? Have fun. It does everything it says on the tin in comfort. Angel Tuning for an easy 40BHP and 60'ISH extra twisties. Makes you smile while being smug!
