Recomend me a small car
Fiesta sized, most it’ll ever have to cope with is 2 people and 2 bikes, so an estate seems unnececary.
Idealy arround £600ish
Reliable (at least the electical bits that cant be fixed cheeply)
Easy to work on (for everything else, brakes, supension, engine etc)Posted 8 years agoTracker1972Member
Got an M reg Micra, it has been rolled into walls, broken into twice so replaced the door (green one onto a white car, I like it!) had the battery replaced once after it was totally run out and started to get a bit temperamental. It is actually my fianceé’s and she has had it for 4 or 5 years I think.
Driven as hard or easy as I like and it hasn’t missed a beat, keep expecting it to fail the MOT badly but just needs the odd tweek.
I would heartily recommend one.
EDIT- one bike wheels off in the boot, easily, could fit two but they would be on top of each other so use a rack if taking two.Posted 8 years ago
yea, I know they dont like being crashed, but my last car was an MG midget, so im used to the whole idea of even mini’s towering over me!
fiesta sized as in fiesta/corsa/older golf/newer polo/older astra etc etc, just happened to see a mk4 (pre facelift) fiesta for sale at the end of the road today for £600, and reasnobly tempted.Posted 8 years agolammyMember
Get a Peugeot 205 1.8d
Probably the most reliable car ever. 50+ mpg
Fold the rear seats down and its like a van. Late models have PAS, you can get a turbo version which is quick too. Also, from 1988 on, all models are zinc coated (galvanized) so there shouldn’t be rust issues. Fiestas and Corsas great but rot for fun…..Posted 8 years ago
I’ve got dibbs on my parents midget as soon as ive got a garrage to put it in.
You’ll learn come deceber that MG’s just dissolve, our’s is a re-shell so as close to new as you can get. Waxoyled as well. But on its first trip out on (dry) salty roads the inevitable rust appeared! Why they don’t galvanise the re-shells i’ll never know!Posted 8 years agoTreksterSubscriber
@ £600 why be so fussy?
So long as it has some tax and a longish mot then anything will do
Pugs/Clios/Fiestas/Skodas/Micras/Almeras etc. Just look at your local rags and go see a few. At that price you may just hit it lucky. I got a cracking Kia Pride, 2 bikes in the boot no problem. Really nice little car, lasted me and daughter 3yrs before getting rid with only the clutch needing replaced @ 80k+Posted 8 years ago
