    Honda Civic

    edit: BUT if you were buying new or nearly new now, I’d look at Hyundai or Kia for the extended warranties.

    None to the OP seems to point to a golf?

    Current Hyundai’s will be top over the next ten years. Honda the last.

    Your looking for a flying carpet there mate powered by fairy dust. Petrol powered Honda of some description probably your best bet. Any diesel very complicated with expensive fuel and clutch related problems not to mention DPF’s. I would plum for a Honda Jazz the 1.4 maybe.

    What is statistically the most reliable car made in the past say 10years and
    1. No larger than a Golf
    2. Can seat 5 people in comfort
    3. Has fair to good mpg
    4. Has cheap spares and non complex parts
    5. Is cheap to insure
    6. Is fun to drive
    7. Can be bought with an Auto box

    Is it actually a Golf?

    Ford Ka are the most rust prone vehicles in the modern age after Mercedes!

    Go to your nearest scrappy and ask them what they have the most of and the least off?
    Go to an mot station and ask them what fail/do not fail the most off 💡

    Do you know, I came off a roundabout last night in my TT, pulled out to overtake the fridge/Kia Piccanto in front, and the Kia just drove away from me.

    Alright I wasn’t exactly at max revs, but even so, it took me by surprise.

    It didn’t make me want one though.
