The g/f's having enough of her Polo. After last weeks do on Monday where it wouldn't go above 10mph in 2nd, today she said it was juddering like funk at 40mph (no ideas what gear she was in though).
She's looking to replace. Her budget will be 1k.
It MAY stretch to 2k but that would depend on:
a. her wanting to loan 1k off me
b. me loaning her 1k
So we'll go with the 1k figure for now.
Her trips are typically 5.5mile journeys to work and back through 30mph/50mph traffic.
She needs something low on tax, low on insurance, and somewhere around the 40mpg return (the higher the better with that though).
Not a Fiat!
or a Hyundai!
I wouldn't mind her getting a Corsa umm, B or C or whatever shape it is - the Y/51 Plate. She was looking at them at one point, as well as many others like Puma's, Fiesta's, other Polo's
*** Forgot to mention, they'd need to be 'that size' too (Fiesta, Corsa, Polo type size - no no suggestions of MK4 Astra as "they're too big")
