    DMF are as soft as they are in vectras and if you get a knocking noise from the front end its just the bottom ball joints which are an easy repair. My dad had one till 3 weeks ago, when some woman lost control of her 4x4 coming off a roundabout and left his looking like this.

    Holy Crap, hope you're pops was ok, I have done some reading about the car prior to driving it today. The Ball Joint problem should of been sorted by 08 cars but as mine is a Jan 08 I'll definatley keep an eye on it.
    The equipment is great, built in sat nav and even a car phone, a sim inserts in the dash.
