Was the engine an option box that you didn't tick?

Not sure it has an engine. It runs on 'elastictrickery'...... and when you give it a boot you get lots of noise  and the same amount of forward motion you get with a slipping clutch. ;D ;D

It's white goods. :-\

I'd rather use a pair of roller skates, as for 21,000 that really is madness.

The Zanussi/Hotpoint hybrid is now back with Jaguar. Crazy MPG figures from it. A 'Tunnie like' 63 MPG showing at one point.

By comparison my car feels like it has been shot from a rocket launcher, when I put my foot down. :y

There's guys on the RRS forum raving about their electric RRs I wouldn't give 500 for one let alone thousands of pounds.

original pictures are of a Yaris.
This is for people who need a small car, and have better things to do than put any effort whatsoever into choosing, buying, owning and driving one.


these are most car owners, which is why Toyotas sell so well. Cars have been white goods since the Model T Ford - which is before white goods...... ;D


Anyone who thinks that a car is a status symbol, or gets excited about the waste noise from the engine is very peculiar.

True, but I still can't see why you'd buy something that has been so comprehensively engineered to eliminate any possible feelings of exhilaration.

Yes....practical shouldn't have to mean dull.

This is the sort of car that would appeal to the Eloi. :)

The Morlocks would drive something with a big V8. :D

Why would anyone want exhilaration from a device that's used to get shopping, or to visit Granny?


Presumably you'd only buy an iron designed with suggestive organic curves, three different tactile metal surfaces, programmable mood lighting, adjustable sound effects and that connects to a Facebook page via Wifi to publicly display your graphed weekly results? And read Performance Iron every month to ensure that you're always aware which one is best suited to your lifestyle?


Or do what real people do, which is buy one as part of the fortnightly shop at Sainsburys after the cat knocked the old one off again and broke it so badly you can't araldite it back together. Although you did try.....

That sort of thinking led to the abomination that was, and is, the Focus. A car that only became practical when they replaced it with that was much bigger.

When I allow myself to browse the trader, thinking I might want a new car, the filters I tick are estate, diesel and auto. Horses for courses.
