    Yes i have one. I used to have a rover 25 but had to get a bigger car due to kids! I got mine from local Vauxhall dealer. I got the basic 1.4 life model. Its an ex mobility car. I got a really good deal on it.

    Can fault it really apart from a few blind spots. Theres plenty off room in the back for the three kids and the boot is big. Havnt noticed any difference in fuel use. Had no repairs yet. Touch wood!

    Get a test drive and see what you think!

    Blind spots are bad on this - the designers must love chunky window frames at home.

    Thanks - the focus has blind spots too. You cant see the front at all and the rear not much better. Really hate my focus! Bit stuck for ideas, as I love Astras but cant afford one of them. I am getting a used car, £4k tops

    I got a 55 plate one for £4,400 plus my battered Rover. I think I got £800 for it. When i got it just over a year ago it had done 10,000 miles.

    Im down In Devon and the car was bought down from Stoke i think. If you go to a dealer ask about the mobility cars. I went in and asked the guy to source me one for £5,000. He came back with a choice off two. I noticed that cars up country were cheaper. I dealer told me that its due to the fact they dont look after them and havnt got as much money, I thought that was a bit off a cheek really even if true!

    Good luck with whatever you decide to do!

    I have a focusd which is pretty rubbish though - cant be any worse

    What do you hate about your focus? We've had 2 in the family and theyve both been spot on for us
