by David Lynch

I’ve owned my Epica diesel for over 3 years & 38,000kms. It’s been very reliable, starting first time every time.

It’s very relaxing & easy to drive both around the suburbs & on the open road. The engine/transmission come into their own on country runs, the engine ticking over at 1800rpm at 110km/h.

I find the car comfortable with easy-to-use controls (particularly the cruise & stereo controls on the steering wheel) & spacious. Economy is great, averaging low 7L/100km around the suburbs & dropping into the low 6s on long country/freeway runs.

The car has all the usual safety features & feels solid on the road.

It has its quirks, like the turbo lag & light steering but I’m well used to those. The speed-sensitive steering is actually very good & progressive as the speed increases.

With multi-link rear suspension (usually found on more expensive cars) the car handles very well during my everyday motoring.

It suits me as a simple, straightforward car. The motoring journalists criticised the car as being “bland”, “boring” etc but they didn’t have it to drive for 3 years & enjoy the long-term reliability, low running costs & everyday practicality.
