Review

BEING a typical bloke, I never read the instruction manual for any item that I use, instead preferring to rely upon my primordial instincts to get me through.

And so it was that when I secured the keys to our 406 Coupe for the weekend, I spent 15 minutes in the dark on Friday night fumbling around under the dashboard looking for the lever to adjust the reach and rake of the steering wheel.

Defeated, I drove home feeling like a bus driver sawing away at the wheel and it wasn't until I met a 406-driving friend of mine that I managed to solve the problem. And once I had the steering wheel adjusted to my liking, I felt very comfortable.

That aside, there are two things that would improve this car immeasurably - a rear wash-wipe to clear the large glass area in the back and some investment in the mechanism of the indicator stalks, which feel flimsy.

Most of the time the stalk won't click into place and stay there, meaning you have to keep clicking it back to continue indicating, or worse, you move the lever and engage your full beam headlights.

CO2 emissions and fuel consumption data correct at time of writing. The latest figures are available in the Fleet News fuel cost calculator and the company car tax calculator.
