We finally traded in our ageing Seat Leon at the weekend and on the way to Fritham I picked up the replacement – a three year old Focus 1.6 LX Estate. We couldn’t bring ourselves to buy an MPV but were looking for a little more space in boot. So far the only complaint is that the engine is a little on the noisy side, for example in 5th gear it’s happy pootling along at 60mph but any faster and it seems to be straining a bit. I’ll miss the handling of the Leon but not the massive servicing bills we’ve had over the past couple of years.
