Which car?

Ive been thinking for a long time on which car i should buy, but im unsure. I am thinking of: Ford Focus, Vauxhall Astra, Toyota Yaris, even the Mercedes A Class. I want a reliable car, but somthing that can move a bit quicker than a lada. What would your advise be? im open to sugestions smile

I would prefer 4/5 Door, with space.

Its my 1st car.

The reason im not even contemplating an older car is because as you's know, a new (ish) car is more reliable.

I know insurance will kill, but im going to take a drivers plus, which should knock of a few quid.

Hi mclaren

Depending on how old you are, if you buy a brand new car, you may even get a years free insurance.

Some some companies will require you to complete Pass-Plus 1st though!

The best thing to do is to shop around for the best deal.

Go around all the dealers, and have a good look round these cars. See which one you feel most comfortable in, i.e. it's no good buying a small car if you'll struggle to get behind the wheel wink

Re: Which car?

Citreon offer a years free insurance. Their Saxo is a great little car.

VW's Polo is great car.

Toyota's Yaris is a lovely car.

My favourite at the moment though is the Skoda (yes Skoda) Fabia.

Re: Which car?

Happy birthday mclaren!

Jonks got to agree the current Skodas are pretty nice looking, had a pupil pass recently whos parents have an Octavia. He drove it whilst learning and now they let him take it out on his own, he seems to like it.

Re: Which car?

I agree with jonks and Liesa, with the choice of car's.

Can I also suggest as it's your first car get one no more than a 1.6ltr engine, It's plenty big enough.
Just my thoughts.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY.

Re: Which car?

thanks everyone big_smile  In not going over 1.6 as ive not driven on the road before (except in the BSM Corsa :? 1.2? ) and also with the insurance. I have looked at the Skoda Fabia. Nice car. Its a Skoda, and i like it! :shock: correct me if im wrong, but its VW/Audi that make Skoda, isnt it? I think the Octavia is a bit big :?

Re: Which car?

Yes, VW now make the parts for Skoda, but Skoda put them together.

I think that how it works anyway.

Skoda are a quality car now, and because of their previous reputation they are cheap to buy. They are also comparatively cheap to insure.

Like VW and Audi, they will pretty much last forever and are much slower than most cars for value depreciation. The engines they are using now are very fuel economic they are the same engines as VW which means if you go for the diesel version, they loose very little power over the petrol version, and cost much less to run (not quite as good the environment though.)


Cars to avoid in my opinion..... Daewoo Matiz, Old Vauxhaul Nova (High insurance, known as boy racer car), Smart car (what were they thinking?)

Re: Which car?

i may be 18 but i HATE boy racers, and speed. I would never go for any vauxhall apart from the Astra or the Vectra at a push, wouldnt touch daewoo, kia, daihatsu, fiat, hyuandi, lexus, mazda, nissan, peugeot, etc.... Ive not heard good things about them.  roll
