    Default This weeks hire car

    Insignia SRi CDTi. First time I've had one and I love it. Almost drove past hotel and kept going

    Electronic handbrake will take some getting used to though.

    Only bad things so far is steering wheel cruise control buttons feel pretty cheap and the glovebox wtf lol

    I'm only down for 3 days. Was something like £18 a day but that's possibly a corp rate. Hired from Enterprise.

    Bad luck on the transit. Probably still better than the Hyundai i20 I got a few weeks ago as a hire car

    Yeah this one is slower than the Vec. Just assumed it was the 130 but perhaps it's not! Lol

    They offered me a silver one or a black one. No brainer really

    does the handbrake automatically hold you for a few seconds for a hill start? loved that when we had a hire car with push button handbrake

    Yes if you try to move away it releases itself.

    The CDTi on the back has a black i. I guess that means its the slower version?
