I am looking for a new car.
I’ve Googled up a storm, gotten excited and been disappointed and I haven’t even started test driving anything yet!
I want to buy a new car- out of the box, or off the floor so to speak- so I am going to have to fork over some dough when I make my decision…
And yes, I know rental cars are often sold relatively cheap and in good nick, as are demo models, and you can find a good deal at an auction- but that’s not the point. I drove second-hand rattletraps that left me standing and frustrated on several occasions before I bought my brand new Aquamarine Opel Corsa 1.6iS almost 10 years ago. But that was because I could only afford second-hand lemons. And since I bought my Corsa I haven’t had a day’s grief! I’ve had to make standard replacements that come with age- but it’s never left me standing!
And now I want to buy another new car.
I would love another Opel- but these people have ridiculously overpriced themselves and I find it immensely annoying.
So I have been looking around and here are some of the ones I’ve found.
Isn’t it amazing how similar so many of these are? I know a lot of them are built in the same factory, and they have the same engines and bodies- just with different badges on… but one of the reasons I loved my Corsa so much when I bought it was because it didn’t look like anything else on the road!
At this point I think I’m leaning towards the Suzuki Swift, the Nissan Tiida, the Ford Fiesta and the Chery Tiggo. They’re relatively affordable, and I think they’re nice looking…
…come play on my rollercoaster…
