    Default New Car

    Folks I've to buy a new car. What would you choose ? And be realistic ..... I'm not talking a Porsche, Ferrari or a Maybach here !

    For me one car is the same as the next .... but I do like my comforts too It must have a proper back seat, 4 doors and be practical for everyday use.

    Don't buy anything that is rear wheel drive. I have had the most miserable winter of my driving life.

    Well .... don't care really. It's replacing a Mercedes GL class which I was never quiet comfortable with due to it's size.

    You'll generally get better value buying a car about 5 years old and selling it in another 5 or so.

    “All right,” said the Cat; and this time it vanished quite slowly, beginning with the end of the tail, and ending with the grin, which remained some time after the rest of it had gone.

    Prob two of the best family cars are the Toyota Avensis and the Skoda Octavia, i know that in the Octavia for a couple
    grand extra u can get air conditioning, cruise control etc. These are both very reliable and practical cars
    Blatant promotion should be outlawed
