Well after looking around for some 18 months I found the one I wanted a 2012 Tekna auto in silver. I've had it 3 weeks now which included a trip up the motorway to Scotland, a good run around up there and even an off road drive through a forest in Dumfries. For me it has everything I needed, auto because of disability, lovely leather seats, a great sat nav, the list goes on. It's even pretty good on diesel I think never having had a diesel before, for the whole trip it averaged 41 mpg. That might improve a little when the engine's done more miles 7200 after my trip. One little question does any body know the correct tyre pressure for 225 55 18 as I can't find it in the book. I just hope it's as good as my old Suzuki GV 1600 that I've had from new a 2001 still with only 57000 miles on. Love the forum, lots of great and interesting info Thanks to you all.

It's not the tire, it's (most) the car that decides the pressure. (Weight per wheel) I put 2.3 atm. in in (The Netherlands has the metric system) Do not know how much this is at yours. :frown:
2.3 works fine to me

Thanks Milton for your info. I do have a plate on the door pillar but I struggle to bend down "disabled" so I'll go along with 33 all round thanks. You would think it would be in the hand book ! Most other things are.

Your welcome, I agree it would be convenient if it was in the hand book. I guess thats the joys of generic handbooks :thumbs:

Mine is 33 front and 30 rear running "empty" - the rear is increased depending on load.

Winter tyres need an extra 3 psi - so I run with winters on 36 front and 33 rear in normal conditions.
