About to buy one

There's a very good chance I'm going to go into the local dealership tomorrow and buy a Clubman S.

I can't really think of any reasons why I shouldn't since my wife and I will both need to commute to our offices soon but it's a big chunk of change.

What mpg are people averaging for a Clubman S with an auto box?

Anyone got one and would recommend against it? We're planning for a baby in the next year or so but I figure a baby and a Clubman are workable - are they?

Hi Adge

I've a manual "S", I get mid 30's going to work which is about 8 miles, rural with a fair amount of stop/start traffic, on a motorway run I can get 40mpg

I've had mine about 3mths and although I experienced problems (mainly rattles) I'd highly recommend and would buy another

I'm sure with careful packing you would get all baby things in and have a great car

A test drive will hook you
