Depends, I live in a fairly hilly area and in out to the city often, average 50mpg driving it harder than the Mazda, in any level open ground it averages 10-15mpg more again, quicker than the 1340cc Mazda and that was averaging 35/36 to the gallon

Re: Faults to date

V70 faults to date, all fixed -
1) Front near side suspension mounts fowling smooth operation of suspension & breaking systems (required specialist machining of mounts! )
2) Rear seat back locked at about -30 from vertical
3) Front passenger air bag kept on sending phantom deployed signals when braking hard (this causes an emergency fuel cut)
4) warped/mis-shapen spare wheel
5) During modification it was noted there was a bolt missing on the engine side of the exhaust manifold (tuners fixed free of charge)
6) It wasn't quick enough

That is the first time I hear that and if it's on all GP's there would be a lot of GP's broken right now. Mine works.

Re: Faults to date

Like I said (and I just checked again just now) there has been no reported cases.

Fan operation is checked (twice) at PDI stage anyway.
