I'm getting a new car, but have absolutely no idea what to go for. i currently have a corsa but i know i don't want a corsa again.

the only requirements are
1.is has 5 doors
2.isn't massive-only me and dd, but possibly her little friend too
3.is reliable (or as reliable as cars can be)

and the usual must have 4 wheels and start lol

I'd have a look at Ford Fiesta, Renault Clio, VW Polo, Mini & Audi A1

How did you like/not like Corsa?

ford fiesta sounds good.

it was a lovely car all the while it was working, but (the reason i'm getting a new one) it's now costing me a fortune to keep fixing and i'd like a complete change and see what else is out there.

i know i could be unlucky and end up with a duff car but i'm hoping i won't

Who's listed all the main contenders so if they for within your budget then can't go wrong with any of those.

cool cheers guys

I'd go for the fiesta. Cheap to run, very reliable and good amount of space for a car of that size.

cool. sounds like the best option and i can pick up a decent one for my budget

If you want a similar sized car, I love my Yaris, economical, reliable, versatile.

Get yourself a copy of what car magazine and it has loads of comparison tables to browse through

You might also want to take a look at our guide to the Top 10 cheap new cars. And if you want to be sure you haven't missed anything else, you could check out all the four- or five-star superminis in our car reviews section. Perhaps make yourself a cup of tea first… smile
