a 2006 could be a corsa c or d , it's the change-over year

having had a couple of corsa c on the fleet a couple of years ,we got rid recently , which I'm happy about  ::)
I think astra H is a much better/robust car at that price-point

I was also very happy to dump the french turd Citreon from the fleet last year  ;D :D

Im trying to justify to myself replacing the chip fat wagon (whether or not I get it fixed) with a small more modern hatchback.......

Not looking for something exciting to drive, just as cheap to run as possible....

Its only for getting to work and back after all.

Sounds like Albs is the perfect candidate for an EV:y

I want something with high mpg and low or zero ved, for three fifths of far call, obviously.  :)
Corsa is £145 pa for ved, which as too high, although the car itself is cheap, so I shall have a think.

You wouldn't  want my Saab then,ved  is £48 per month :-X

If I could find a cheap one it would be perfect. Got a charging point thing at work I can use.

One of the main probs with these little carsa's is the timing chain rattle,and thats what they get rid of them owing to it being a day job in a garage to have it sorted.
Well its a fairly easy and rewarding job to do on your drive,ive done three of them now and once you have finished the job and turn the key it sounds a different car to the one you had rattling away earlier.... the chain kit will cost you around £80 for a good one.

But it is a big V8 with a "go opps yourself" soundtrack, so all in all, still pretty good value  8)
