Advice

Post by Cashman81 » Mon Jan 11, 2021 7:40 pm

Hi all,

I am looking to buy a used 1.8 chr probably the excel or dynamic, but have a few of questions I would like to ask if anyone can help:

What sort of average mpg has anyone got on motorway driving? Aware this will be less than city driving average etc.

I have heard the 2017 model has issues? Does anyone have any info on that or is that something I have imagined?

And lastly any main cons to it although you could well love the chr?

Appreciate any kind of response or feedback

Thanks

Don’t know who told you about issues, but I would not believe it, There have been one or two teething problems that have been fixed (eg winscreen, puddle lights) and a couple of recalls - again fixed.
A con? Hard one, that. Some complain about the sat nav and audio, but I find them ok.
Mpg varies by temperature and speed. In summer on motorway (at 65-70mph) I can get up to 66 mpg. Over 4 yrs I have averaged 56mpg.
I am about to buy a new one - but going for 2.0 litre this time.
All the best
Alex

Exactly the same for me, nearly 4 years old now and I've done over 40k miles

Like most (if not all) completely new models of any brand have issues at first. And yes, there were some (cracked windscreen, rattle in the back - probably most noted here in forum), but these were all solved in the first year or so. So you should be good
