I am a firm believer in the theory that you get what you pay for in this world. Ownership for 12 months of the Dacia Ambience 1.2 has reinforced that maxim. It was cheap, brand new, passable performance, chunky, sluggish at times and often wanting for pace. It is never going to break any land speed records and I would not fancy my chances competing against the vast majority of small hatchbacks for nippiness. Fine for short trips, no good on motorways. Great boot space, decent headroom ( I am 6' 5") quite economical. Overall, a decent car,no performance to get excited about but at the end of the day a new car for less than £7k. A no brainer really.
