Used CX-3

Hi, I recently bought myself a used CX-3, after my tank of a RAV4 started to get expensive after 16 years faithful service. I owned a 626 when I was stationed in Belgium in the mid-eighties, so was already familiar with the marque. It was a toss up between the CX-3 or CX-5, but with money being tight I couldn't justify the 5 just for a little extra space.

I found the cockpit a little claustrophobic at first, but have started to get used to that, and space is tight when loading up with guitars, amps etc, but it's do-able. Apart from that I have had no issues whatsoever.

Today I returned to my parked car to find that someone had scraped the plastic wheel trims above the rear wheel, so will need to replace them. It could have been worse as the body itself has not been touched. I'm hoping that removal and replacement is a straightforward process!
