Vauxhall. But I'm not a fan of fords.

Focus. Fords are meant to be more reliable than Vauxhalls I think.

I have a focus and really happy with it.

I've got a diesel. Pay £30 a year tax.

Focuses and Astras are both quite reliable by reputation.

What about a Honda Civic?

I don't know much about the focus but have driven bigger fords my mum has an Astra and have hired a few.
Drive them both first. My dad and I both have the same comfort problem in an Astra in that it seems to be set up for an orangutan. To be far enough away from the pedals it's hard to get comfortable with the steering wheel.

Sorry it actually suits my mum because she drives with her noses pressed against the windscreen anyway.

I have an Astra, my mum has a focus.

I love my Astra. Reliable, spacious, relatively economical.

The focus is ok too. Not too much to choose between them.

Yy to drive them both and then decide.
