Got an i10 9 years ago on the scrapage scheme for £5,600 at a time when people were laughing at them. 50k miles later, a couple of services, 4 tyres, set of rear brake pads later still running fine. Still worth at least £1,500? Does get a bit uncomfortable on 270 mile drives but I should probably take a break. Will probably take one for a 550 mile trip to Glasgow in December! Was looking at a Dacia but this does seem a bit better as a replacement. Too many car snobs here. Only annoyance is it not still just £30 road tax.
Voted hot. I love crap cars. I had a fiat Tipo as my first car, was utter crap, but made every journey exciting as you didn't think you'd make it. Toyota and Lexus are reliable to the point of boring. Shame daihatsu pulled out of UK, used to love the little sirion and copen.
Not the best of examples. About 6 months back, the brother-in-law picked up a '16 reg Celerio SZ2, with 20k on the clock & still under manufacturers warranty for £4.5k. It's been faultless. Did anyone actually say these were premium cars? They're probably not but what they definitely ARE are practical, sensible, reliable, environmentally friendly, fuss-free cars for people that genuinely can't see the sense in paying mega-bucks for a deprecating asset that sits doing nothing for 97% of the time. However laugh all you like if it makes you feel better...
Wouldn't find me Dead in one of these! Mind you its probably cheaper than a snazzy Coffin. Lol
Pretty cheap car loans available at moment 2.8% at Sainsbury's.
