Chap in the syndicate got a Dacia 4x4 for ferrying his dogs and pigeon shooting gear about as well as the work run.It’s not as if it’s got to compete much for build quality, a couple of quads or the farm 90
Short lived and unreliable electrics then.
I passed my test in Woolwich, I got into third gear, well almostUse his car till 2021 when the daily emission charge kicks in. You haven't passed your test yet but hopefully will. A 20 year old motor that you haven't had to pay for is the ideal car for London while you earn your first year of No Claims. Other drivers will give you a wide berth, you won't grumble too much when the cyclists squeeze alongside in London traffic jams and scrape their handlebars down the side, you won't fuss about kerbing the wheels when parking on-street in tight spots and it's got enough weight to it to run over the odd cyclist and mangle their wheels when you meet them jumping the lights.
Learning to drive in London... you're braver than me....
Almost certainly you are right but then, it is not in a car makers best interest to build cars that last forever.Short lived and unreliable electrics then.
Somehow don't see it as surviving long enough to make it onto the vintage market
I got an i20 and it needed a new clutch at 29k (I bought it 2 months earlier)Wife has an i10 Premium 1.2. It is a fully loaded cracking little city car, drives beautifully, quietly and cheaply and is £30 per year road tax.
Look for one coming off PCP after two or even three years ... low mileage and well looked after - normally sold under a main dealer‘s ’approved‘ cars plan. £5k to 6k should get you into pristine 30k miles premium on a 63 / 64 plate.
We have already decided on another i10 to replace this one as our little town / short trip runabout.
Prince Philip walt, RIPDad lost/surrendered his license to avoid persecution, so became reliant on cabs. Mobility not great, and most were hard work for him.
The one recommended by cabbies was indeed the Berlingo. The seat is at a height where you don't drop in, nor do you climb up.
Just a thought.
PS - Dad died, but nothing to do with cars.
