    My car

    I have just purchased a 2001 Y reg GXI diesel. Its got 93k miles but the interior is like new, comfortable seats, CD, AIR CON, huge boot and 50 plus MPG. If you are looking for a reliable, comfortable diesel estate then I would recommend one, especially when you can get one for around £2000!

    My car

    I have just purchased a 51 Reg 2.0 GXI SE diesel and must say that I am very pleased with the spec and the comfortable ride. It has done 85,700 miles and runs like new.

    My car

    I have had this car the GSI SE 2002 model from new. It has been brilliant apart from the depreciation. The equipment is fantastic --cruise control, climate control, sunroof, alloys, ski-hole, fittings for IKEA roofbars, 6 cd player, etc. etc. The only replacement in 5 years has been a new brake light!! It has just sailed through the 5 yr MOT. A great buy as a second hand car for anyone lucky enough to find one.

    My car

    I've had this 1997 model 626 for 2 years now; 132,000 miles when purchased - now up to 152,000. I've paid 2 years GreenFlag breakdown subscription, but have never ever needed to call them. Almost nothing has gone wrong, amazing for a car of this age and mileage. In the last 12 months my total maintenance bill has been £5 for a puncture repair, and £75 for the MOT and routine service. In the previous year I spent £100 on exhaust parts and about the same on new disks. Spares seem very cheap compared to other cars I've owned It's fast and comfortable to drive; excellent at eating up motorway miles; there's masses of space inside for the family and an amazing amount of luggage. I am very reluctant to part with this car; my next one is almost certain to be worse.
