Corsa is horrible car to drive, at least the newer ones anyway. A friend had one as a courtesy car while his MG was in the garage, it was a brand new one and the positioning of the gearstick and the layout of the dash was really poor.

I have an M reg 106, been driving for 2 years now. I love my little pug, it handles well, its comfortable and (I thrash the living crap out of it) it just keeps on going
I like all Peugeots, whereas a lot of people say they have bad experiences with poor quality and service...my mum has had 3x 106s, 2x 306s and now her second 206 from the same garage and none of them have had problems and we've been really impressed with the service.

Toyota/Honda/Mazda/Nissan (if you want a Micra...) are the best way really. Cheap, efficient and reliable. I don't really like them in looks but you can't argue with the reports of satisfied customers.

My wife had a MK2 clio she then lent it to someone for ten mins and wrote it off for her
, she loved that car loads (1.2L) went like poo off a shovel!

We now have a fiat punto, bought it for a £100 and it went though the MOT no problems! Bargain! Not a bad car just fidly to repair.

The best car i had was a (belive it or not) Rover 216sli (honda enigne), Great car just a shame its viewed as an old mans car

I wish they still sold some of the euro cars over here. I'd still buy a fiat, some of them look pretty nice, like the punto. But that clio looks pretty cool, nice buy man.

Man that sucks you guys have 1.1L cars... And I thought the 1.6 honda motors were tiny. How much does that thing weight? Looks like it wouldn't go up a hill with the ac on.


That's what happens when they tax gas up the ass. You guys should have revolted or something when gas prices started going up.
