Classic but pratical
Member Name: lauraar
Advantages: A fun car with loads of character.
Disadvantages: Some parts can be expensive. Many insurance companies won't insure them.
After growing up with classic cars in the family I can't imagine owning something modern (although I have to admit they drive so well). I had a succession of classic cars but then got a job where I needed something practical. We looked into this and found the Nissan Figaro. I've owned one for almost 7 years now. It does everything a practical car needs to and doesn't break down as often as a classic. Some parts can be expensive (like front bumpers) but there are so many friendly dealers out there that will help you out. Many parts are shared with a common Nissan Micra too. There are forums for owners too where you can get tips for keeping your Figaro in good condition. It's not a fast car but it is nippy. It has four seats but the back ones are small. Our ten year old fits in their perfectly but he'll get bigger! My friends are willing to sit in the back when the roof is down for short journeys.
Summary: It's a beautiful car and a joy to own just make sure you find a reliable garage.
