    My car

    I have owned my Agila from new for three years now, and I love it. It has taken me all over the country quite happily, plodding along at 70mph on motorways and occasionally 80mph.

    I find it brilliant to park and can fit all my camping gear in the back when the seats are down. It is also quite happy to carry my mother's disabled scooter and one seated passenger in the back, along with luggage for holidays.

    It completely covers my transport needs, and is cheap to insure.

    My car

    I love this car! It has great visibility, which is fab if you are as nosy as I am. It can be parked in very small spaces, too.

    The kids love being able to see everything as we go along. Yes, it's not fast, but I have trundled up and down the M1 at 70mph quite happily. If you want to go fast, buy something else. If you want comfort and economy and a a great view, you can't do better than this.

    My car

    I only took this car for a test run and that was enough for me. I must agree that it is very roomy inside the cabin as myself and husband are quite tall and plenty of room in the back for the children.

    The road handling and noise was a bit too much for my liking, you felt every bump and the noise inside was quite deafening.

    We decided not to buy this particular model.

    My car

    I have owned this car since early 2002.

    In three years, I have a minor problem with the rear door lock jamming and a coolant leak. Other than that, it has been completely reliable.

    I thought the review on here was a bit hash. It's true that out on the motorway it is in need of more power. I have the 1.2 and would suggest this is a minimum engine size to get. In fourth there is good power but this tends to be not a cruising gear after 50mph. In fifth, it is a case of more gentle acceleration.

    I have seen this car commonly in the countryside, the four doors and ample room for shopping even high milk churns, make this more than just a city car.

    On the motorway, with your foot down hard, it can be thirsty - consider the shape and you can easily imagine why. Keep to 60mph and it is plenty economical enough. For this reason, I might dismiss this car for someone who wants something cheap and does a lot of motorway miles.

    If you're a looking for a lot of car for not a lot of money, then I think this is the pick of the bunch. I would say if you are bigger than average, then it is ideal. The high seating also is suitable for the older driver.
