When did you buy the car?
Did you get a good deal and why?
Its proven itself over time. I generally buy £500 mark cars, so getting one that was MOT'd for the year with some Tax was a bargain.

Cheap, 12 months MOT, had the 1.4 a few years back, some tax remaining.
What was the dealer like?
Nice chap, bought and sold a few cars.
What's it like to drive?
Alright i suppose, of all my budget cars, its been the comfiest seated, everything is in easy reach. Not too bad on long distances. Bit sluggish in some corners, but then again, not a sports car!
What's it like to park?
Seems bigger than it actually is, normally end up with plenty more room than expected!
Living with it
Have you had any problems with the car?
Rear suspension started wallowing and getting worse. (guessing originals) £100 to replace. Needed CV Boot, brakes all round and washer motor replacement for MOT (£200 inc MOT) Slight coolant leak, top up every 2 weeks to a month.
What's most practical about your car?
Its a good all-rounder, enough space for all sorts (including house move), quite nippy for a 15 year old 1.6 standard car, averaging 50mpg on motorway runs, and about 35 daily stop start short trips. Cheap enough to insure, tax is abit steap.
Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Only just found the dash options button (After a year!) bar that its pretty basic. Air con is great.
