VAUXHALL ZAFIRA DIESEL TOURER 2012-onwards

Ergonomically this car suffers from a stiff clutch (yes even after you grease it to get rid of the squeak) and a stiff gearchange, Engine is allegedly "whisper quiet" according to their marketing but it's noisy in a harsh way and has a distinct chain whine, it's quite unpleasant. The engine also suffers awful turbo lag, because the turbo is oversized and poor throttle response at low speed, sometimes you can press the pedal a full inch and get nothing, which knocks your confidence when trying to roll into a gap at roundabouts. Another annoyance is the self cancelling indicators which are incorrectly timed on the steering column (by design), so they cancel just when you don't want or expect them to. The heater and air con take ages to achieve anything in the car, neither cooling nor heating the cabin quickly. Otherwise loads of space and clever seats and the radio is OK. But overall a frustrating car to drive which manages to completely avoid any way to reward you for the purchase, and I'm counting down the days until I can hand it back.
