Anyone own a Toyota Aygo, VW Beetle (newer version) or a Hyundai?

Am looking at the Hyundai i20 with government scrappage, but considering all options have looked at the Aygo and Beetle also as I like these.

What are your experiences of these cars please, or the manufacturers in general.

Many Thanks for all your help. Rep where I can.

Heading for a bath, will look at results when I get back!!

Toyato Aygo 3 STAR

I know I'd spend the money on a Fiesta or the Mazda Version. Is it a 3?
Basically the same cars.

Someone at work has just got a blue i20, he wanted the silver colour was told delivery would not be till September because everyone wants the i20 and factories in the far east are at full capacity.

Another note is the cracking warranties on the Hyundais.

Dunno about the Hyundai, the Aygo is a very good wee car and the Beetle is for birds.

I am a bird.

I was quoted probably October for the i20, they're selling so well. The warranty pulled me in and the £2,500 for my old banger too.

Parents sat in the back of a new fiesta the other week for a short drive with thier friends and said they were so uncomfortable they would never consider one themselves which obv puts me off.

Dad mentioned a Mazda, but I'm only 22 so need to consider insurance too.

Have heard Hyundais are reliable so wondered what others thought.

rep all round. x

Mazda is identical to the chasis on the Fiesta so that rules that out.

Tbh getting a new car is going to be the main expense on the insurance, but being female its going to be lower then us gents. I would rule of the beetle as there pap.

Hyundai is probably your safest bet, and if you are still a student then your not going to want to worry about car parts under that warranty.

Costs mount up with them though, obviously more for auto, 5 door etc, but if I want red I'm ok, otherwise it's £350 for any other colour.

will gander on msn cars at mazdas.

Tbh you buy whats the best deal and reliable. Don't look at power or anything. I have been through so many cars last 2 years due to failing french cars. Me and my mate are in the same boat he knows a lot about them and i'm learning but we came to the same desicion all we want is a reliable motor which is cheap to run.

You want a simple car with cheap parts in the long run, I think any of the above will be okay and you want something thats going to last. The engines in the Fiestas have been the same reliable ones for ages, and there built by germans so all good. I really want one of the fiestas, but I do like the apeal of the Hyundias warranty my grandad has had one for the last 6 years Hyundai Getz not changed a thing on it but tyres and discs/pads which is normal wear and tear, which suggests good reliabilty. Hes done about 24k on it, not the biggest of millage but its like new, partly down to his care of the car. But as long as you keep it serviced you can't go wrong really.:thumbsup:

I have a Mazda 6 with bulletproof reliability, flew through 3 MOT's with a bulb and an adjustment in that time. I'd have a look at the Mazda 3, they are only very very loosely based on the Fords. so the comfort may be totally different. Insurance on the Mazda is no higher than the Fiesta either, and cheaper than the Beetle, which i personally don't like.

I think you should also consider the New Ka, they look hot in white.

Alfa Romeo MiTo?

Something a bit different?
#13
i havent got one but the hyundi is supposed to be a blooming cracking car!!
#14
i have had an i10 since they came out last year great car and decent spec for the price hav had no problem wth it you generally wont have ,they wouldnt offer you a five year warranty if they expected to be repairing them all the time also love my £35 a year road tax and no congestion charges

the i20 wasnt out at time i may get 1 in a couple of years when i trade it in as it has a bit more room

I have had a look at the 3, but don't find it as small/funky as I'd like-It has a long nose!! I don't need a family car or anything for a good while yet.

Having said that, I'll pay the extra for a 5dr i20 if I get it 'cos it has a 5 yr warranty and a lot can happen in 5 years!!

I do like the Ka, but something about it..I don't know..I don't get a good feeling about it. We have a dealership nearby however that I'm visiting in the next couple of days.



Just had a look at the mito-i like it actually, seems smaller than I would like, but worth looking into. Dad reckons Alfa's have a reputation for rusting though?

The "reputation" of Alfa Romeo spans back to the 1980's models, trust me, any Alfa less than 15 years old are just as reliable as any other car. My 11 year old Alfa is testament to that :thumbsup:
