My mum said to me (I am a 50 year old man) that mumsnet mums all drive new cars. I said that was rubbish. But you only have What Car reviews...so maybe she is right...??

It was new when I bought it - 5 years ago

51 plate original focus here - it does well.

Wouldn't buy new because of the depreciation as soon as you drive off the forecourt!

V reg, so 13 years old. We also have a second car which is 17 years old.

We've never had a new car. To me, new would be one with the "new" style number plate (AA51 AAA) type rather than the VAAA AAA type grin.

Mine is a focus too member.
I'm off shortly to collect her from the garage. smile

Mine was a new car when I bought it, it was 8 in Sept. It's a bloody brilliant and reliable Yaris and looks like it will only get replaced when I have too many children for the seats.

I do. A new car and my first car! smile

Just wanted to point out <hoists bosom> that Mumsnet Cars' 'What Car?' reviews are written specifically for Mumsnet Cars, and all of our Cars pages are edited by an experienced woman motoring journalist with two young children [ie. moi] grin. What's more, every 'What Car?' review gives Mumsnetters the opportunity to leave their own review too - the more the merrier!

Yes. Every time!

New company car every 18 months for last 20 years - guess I've been lucky, but the boss does work me hard!

We've got two cars bought from new. These days with the cheap finance, and longer warranties, it can usually make good financial sense compared to used cars. We've got a Kia which was cheap to buy and comes with a 7 year warranty. We will probably keep it for that long. The payments were only £100 a month on the finance (now finished).
