Great review, I am equally as delighted with my UP after 8.5K miles

I also keep forgetting to put the rear parcel shelf down until after noticing it in the rear view mirror

It's hard to realise that I have had mine six months now. Haven't looked at the mileage or the MPG figures, but I do know I don't call in the petrol station half as much as I used to. I agree about the heated seats and it's not yet winter, but I already know they are going to be a boon. The M & M is also a great little device as are the reversing sensors, which have already stopped my partner backing in to another car which had parked behind her, from out of nowhere (as they do). I am delighted with the available space inside and the seat adjustment is also very good. In short I have no complaints.

Crikey, puts me to shame.
Had my up just over two months now and still have not quite done 1000 miles yet. Looking forward to mine being run in!
Loving driving it though, and not going to the petrol station as often is a major bonus too!

Had it a month and just hit 400 miles and averaging 57mpg, although seen a slight dip in mpg with the cooler weather has been a happy chappy on my commute and I do actually prefer driving ot to the Leon and my kids prefer being in the Up! to the Leon. Have to seen how it compares to my F20 1 Series on order that I collect in March.

I've had my car for about seven months now and have covered just over 7k miles. It is a great little car and drives better now than when it rolled out of the dealership. The engine purrs along and all the 'strange' noises have gone or are less apparent.

The only downside has been the quality control issues with the car - door rattles, loose trim and windscreen water leaks. These issuesdefinitelytook the gloss off the initial ownership experience.

The best feature for me is the cushioned ride quality and the performance of the car (nippy for 75hp and economical). The heated seats are unexpectedly good (if you've a sore back) and there is plenty of room inside the car with a deep boot.

Modifications? I've just fitted Nightbreaker Plus bulbs after seeing recommendations here. They are a bit brighter that the standard fit but don't seem to extend the range much, as far as I can tell.
