as per my recent post my alfa 147 has seen its last days on the road.
while i totally enjoyed driving the 147 it felt sturdy and strong on the road,the upkeep for such a car is not in my possibilities anymore.
so i am scrapping/selling the broken alfa 147 (havn't decided totally what i will do as i want most £ i can get )
anyways so i am now in the market for a new 2nd hand car with about 1500e to spend on it.
i am looking at done deal daily and in my head i really want a golf or a polo but preferably a golf.
thing is i know very little about cars in general altough since i joined octane i did read heaps and picked some tips etc.
the car is going to be doing 400+ miles a week, motorway driving nenagh to limerick possibly for 6months to a year while i finish my course. so want something that isn't gonna kill me on petrol and isn't too expensive to maintain.(saying that i was putting in 85euro into the 147 on petrol alone a week)
i was saying a toyota starlet etc at first to myself,but i don't want to have to drive 60mile an hour,i want something that has a little bit of power i.e a golf 1.4l, there are some nice looking ones on done deal but honestly i wouldn't have a clue if its a goodun or not even after a test drive lol so just asking for some tips and recommendations if possible from u guys
