I genuinely do not know where to start when I look for a car. My previous car was a lease as I had no deposit saved and needed a car ASAP. I wouldn't lease again as simply the repairs to the scratches (someone keyed the length of my car, set me back £600) and the refurbishment of my alloys means I just don't think it was worthwhile in the end, especially considering the amount of miles I cover (15k per annum).
My questions really are what cars would you recommend to somebody who cares less about what he is driving and more about how much it costs, simply want my commute each day to be as cheap and reliable as possible, somebody who knows nothing of mechanics so isn't likely to do work himself?
Also can I pay for a car on a credit card that has 30 months interest fee if I believe I can pay it off in that time period (I reckon I can afford to pay back about £250 a month). Should I buy new, nearly new, banger or what? All opinions will be more educated than mine so will be appreciated.
