What are they like a?

My beautiful wife can't drive, I am still wondering if I'm going to let her drive the Landy's or not once she has her provisional license.  In Australia a provisional means you are though the basic learning phase and can drive solo.  P plates have to be displayed and it takes several years until you qualify for the full drivers license.  There's no way she's getting her hands on the "toys", but I will get her something like a car with parking assist or a Hyundai I30.

Yes, the one I got my wife is a Citroen C4 Picasso flair.

Whether she'll use the assist parking or not, I don't know

Don't see many Citroen's down here. A smattering of Renaults which is set to increase over time as the local GM operation (GM Holden) closed it's factory. This means no more Vauxhaul XR? series and the same with fraud motor company, that leaves no local car manufacturing as Toyota, Datsun / Nissan and so on have already closed their manufacturing and assembly works.

I've done 110,000 klms in the Spanish one in 6 years from new no problems just had a new battery brake pads usual wear and tear stuff thats all.

Pleased with it so far.

Comfy and not a car that is like sitting in a deck chair, I've had all auto's since 1981 the first was on a BMW 2002 sports, I guess they are more common in Aussieland but they are becoming more common here now
