    My car

    I owned one of these great little cars for about 15 months. I could not fault it in any way. When I bought it it had done 138000 miles but it had full service history and was in good condition. I only paid £650 for it and in the time I had the car all I done to it was replace the front exhaust downpipe which cost a mere £27 and also a 12000 mile service with an MOT which was £99. The car was reliable ,economical, fun to drive and most of all cheap to run. My only mistake was trading it in for a Mercedes A140!

    My car

    I don't like the small engine, long gear changes, short wheelbase, and the fact that it's unstable at higher speeds. It also has a weak handbrake, and feels too small.

    However, the interior design is smart, and it's nimble at low speeds. It's also got decent suspension.

    My car

    First, here are the disadvantages to the 106. It has a very noisy engine, a long gearshift pattern, poor interior space both in the front and in the back, the gearbox eats itself, and there's far too short a gear ratio in first.

    Also, it has squeeky brakes (even after being changed), a small fuel tank, it needs a lot of oil changes, it starts on three cylinders in any weather conditions, and the clutch commits suicide at the worst possible moment.

    However, it has good boot space, returns good fuel economy, has decent bodypaint work, suspension and seats, and it has an immobiliser.

    My car

    I love my little 106 I have owned it just over a year now.

    Touch wood it has never let me down.

    This car is really fun to drive, its really nippy and can easily beat VW's, BMW's, Audi's etc at the lights.

    You can take corners at speed with no problems.

    I find the interior slightly boring and out of date but it does its job!

    Iv had a few bodywork issues at the MOT stage but nothing major..... yet!!!

    Overall a great little car.. I love it!
