"what car"

Buying a car is one of the most expensive purchases most people are
going to make so the publishers have made a magazine which makes buying a new car much easier that any other mag in the country. It contains the most popular cars in the UK e.g. Ford Fiesta, Peugeot 206,Toyota Yaris and one of my faviroutes, Fiats wonder car the Punto!!
The contenders are nicely laid out beside one another, and then the test is started!. The cars are marked out of 5 for each rating. The cars are tested for the following.
. Ride and handling
. Refinement
. Behind the wheel
. Equipment
. Space
. Reliability
. Safety
. Security
. Buying and owning
Q and A is a brilliant way to have your problems answered and discussed with the whole of England!.


Helpline is a excellent way to share your sorrows with the whole of the UK it is normally people who have written in and explained about there new car which is to expensive for the guarantee to be covering them etc etc

This magazine is priced at a brilliant price of only £3.20 which can be bought at any good newsagents and the occasional corner shop and most supermarkets

I enjoy reading this magazine because I like to know the latest news in each and every model launched in Britain .I am interested in the stats of cars and there equipment etc

I would have no problems of completely recommending this to anyone who likes a good read and enjoys reading about the latest equipment and models etc
