So, our car was written off 5 days ago when DH and the DC's were in the wrong place at the wrong time when a river suddenly burst its banks and they had to be rescued by the fire bridge. Scary stuff but we now have to think about getting a new car.
We had a Ford Cmax was was very reliable and cheap to maintain so it is definitely on the list to consider again. However in our area there are 12-15 pre registered Citroen C3 Picasso's all exactly the same model with just delivery millage for under 10k (list price is £15,395) so looks to be a real bargain. Never owned or even driven a citroen. The car has a great 'what car' review but first hand experience would be great...anyone??
I'd be interested in knowing this too... our car is coming to the end of it's days and we are looking about this afternoon and this surprisingly caught my eye and the prices for a used model thats 6-12 months old is very appealing.
We went to the dealership today and bought one! It has 20 miles on the clock and was reduced from a list price od £15,375 to £9,990 so a bargain. Nice high driving position and good visibility. It's a bit smaller overall than our cmax but inside there's not much in it and uses the interior space very well.
