    I have a confession to make

    I am thinking of getting the missus one of these...

    She has an old golf diesel for her little rums to meet her Mum Chums at the moment and every time she goes out in it I say a little prayer that it lasts the journey.. Its just not practical with a little one.

    Thoughts ?

    I don't realy want to put you off,
    But my neighbour had one of those, and he had a lot of trouble with it(please don't ask what because my neighbour is hard to understand at the best of times)

    Every individual car differs so maybe his car was a one off,
    all i know is that he only kept it for about a year, had endless problems and lost a lot of money in part ex,

    But please see what other members have to say, personally i never looked or drove the car, so i realy can't comment about that

    not if your back and forth to the garage for endless problems.

    especially if you work and have to take time off to get it sorted.

    i personally wouldnt get one due to there is no dealer near me to take it to if i had problems even tho they look canny cool lol

    That does seem rather excessive for 1 child, or even 3 lol.

    How about a Meriva to keep it vauxhall.

    the 1.7 CDT100s are pretty nippy.

    I looked at the Vauxhalls, but as it is for the wife, she thinks they are ugly.

    Its actually not that big, its a few cm's shorter than the CRV. just a bit taller.

    7 year warranty...all over that! Plus although I vowed never to buy new. With the first 800 of these in the UK they are top spec. After that they go to the normal "range" plan.. plus the VAT rate goes up in Jan and its not likely to come down again !
