I passed my driving test in 2010 and purchased this car at £100 from a local dealer to help practice before my test. P Reg, 0.9 Engine and in reasonable condition. I spent 2 months on a provisional which helped a lot, as any car would do. There was no p ... Read review

Car review of Fiat Seicento 1.1 by Numptey

Advantages: Cheap to run, Fun to drive, loads of space for most things.
Disadvantages: Clutch cable snaps every few years, carry a spare lol

I get really fed up with people slatting this car as they don't seem to get what it's about. I have driven many vehicles over the years from big executives, buses, to cheap second hand heaps of doggy doo doo and I have never owned one this long. Firstly i ... Read review

Car review of Rover Mini 1.3 by Katieshaz

Advantages: Cheap to run, tax and insure, fun to drive, good talking point.

Advantages: Super fuel efficient, reliable, quirky head turner, cheap to tax and insure easy to park.

I bought my SMART CAR in March 2008 on a 03 plate with 28000, this was a revolution for me as I've driven lots of high performance cars, but my job at that time came with a car allowance and my job involved driving around Birmingham a couple of days a wee ... Read review

RELIABLE AND ECONOMIC!
Car review of Ford Ka 1.3i  by nickradford45

Advantages: Economicle and reliable
Disadvantages: More of a girly look.

This was a fantastic car. It's clean and modern and is easy to drive. The interior is nice and tidy too and the bold, silvery dash makes it all the better. Fuel is cheap (even with todays prices) and being a 1.3 the tax isn't bad either. cheap on insuranc ... Read review

Cheap and cheerful
Car review of Fiat Seicento 0.9 by l500589

Advantages: cheap to buy, insure, maintain, and run
Disadvantages: very small car, struggles up hills when more than 2 people in

My Wife (girlfriend at the time), had a new one of these at the age of 17 in order to learn her driving skills in. The car was £4500 new, and very low insurance, so it is ideal for new drivers to learn in. She found it very easy to drive in, nice li ... Read review

Car review of MINI Cooper by lj1989

Advantages: Appearance, comfortable

Great review! Nice to hear of someone happy with their mini, as mine was rubbish. I didn't enjoy driving it (it was like driving a bus) and it was unreliable. I was relieved to get rid of it, but very grateful for the high part exchange price :) I now have a Polo GTi and much prefer it to the mini, apart from its looks. . by offy
Lovely review. I had one of the old style minis years ago - it was very basic. I'd love one of the new ones. by ladybracknell
