    Right I have decided to make some changes in my life and one of them is to get my driving license, got lessons booked and i am looking about to get a car now to practice in and then use as my first car.

    Any suggestions of what makes a good first car? I have been eyeing up a Mazda 323 1.6i and a Peugot 306 1.4xs, i refuse to have a 1ltr or a 1.1 as i have ha da go at driving these engine sizes and they just dont seem to have enough ooomph ๐Ÿ˜‰

    As its going to be my first car i want to spend about a grand may a grand and a half.

    Suggestions welcome!

    I can recommend the peugout 306 – I had one up until recently and they are very reliable [diesel one is what I had] and drive well. Having never been a fan of anything that size I would get another one like a shot as I loved driving it and ended up selling it to a friend so as to know it would be appreciated

    VW polo’s are really cheap, i got mine for 1.4L ยฃ1200 for a Nreg with only 60,000 miles. They are also really reliable.

    never buy ford or vauxhall, they are crap

    i recommend japanese cars for relaibility. diesal engines are more reliable and bit more economical so a better bet for second hand cars
