Well I now have another car! The old one was just getting too expensive to run especially in the current financial situation!
So we went out and bought a Nissan Note. It is a 2011 model, actually 11 months old, a 1.6 ltr engine and the n-tec spec which has lots of toys and the car is in the Magnetic Red colour!
Here she is:
Both my wife and I are very happy with the car!
Costs will be at least 50% less than the old car, so we should save money over the next 3 to 5 years!
The car drives lovely and has lots of space inside. Fuel consumption is good in that it gets around 45mpg overall and more on a longer journey!
We had dubbed the Car our Red Indian!
