Ill write this in more detail longer… but those stupid car safety ads.. whats up with that.. its not the speed of the car that kills you, its not the impact with the car in front that kills you, its not the hitting into the dashboard and smacking your head on the windscreen that kills you… oh no its your internal organs continuing forward at the speed you were going smashing into your ribcage puncturing your lungs and arteries that kill you… okay if thats the case then how on earth does the seatbelt help save you.. sure a seatbelt stops you hurtling forward and smashing into the dashboard and windscreen but surely your internal organs still continue forward at the speed you were travelling at… and the seatbelt stops your body but not your internal organs so you will still die if thats the case.. stupid advert because I think its the impact on the dashboard that in fact kills you, the sudden impact of your body flying forward smashes your ribcage back into your body where a seatbelt slows you down gradually.. if youre going t do a stupid advert like that GET YOUR BLEEDING FACTS RIGHT

Didnt have a blog to rant about this at the time… but how long is three days? in basic terms youd think 72 hours right? at a push you would think maybe 60 hours, but… when I booked a “3 day test drive” with them they booked me on from 6pm (when I picked up the car) to 9am 2 days away, and only because I objected strongly about the fact that they were trying to book me in at the end of the next day… hardly a three day test drive…

On top of that the car was a bit poor to drive… it had a mpg reading which you constantly got distracted from the road by trying to get the best mph 9and getting 99mph at some points was a highlight but definately far more distracting than most things, looked far too much at that readout, definately at least 10% of the road time which was bad.

The car was huge, difficult to park, filled a whole tesco car parking space with no room to open the doors, so parked taking up 2 spaces because I didnt want to scratch it against the 2 pillars which are every 2 spaces lol. Last thing about it was that the seating position was a bit high and you felt more like you were in a van rather more than a car… Dont think Ill be booking another test drive with them… hardly the best service if they cant even provide the 3 days they say they will provide the car for ha. Makes you think what other services they offer will be of similarly bad service?
