Ah another car review from me... Yes I know I have covered a few in recent years on here but this is due to a bit of bad luck with cars in the past couple of years. My last car review was the Rover Streetwise, unfortunately this came to a squashed end... Literally! A drunk BMW driver decided to park on top of it, thankfully I was asleep in bed at the time. So since then we have had another 106 which eventually gave up on me and was replaced by a 206 (soon to be reviewed) which came to an icy end and now due to being fed up of spending money on having newish nice cars I decided to spend as little as possible on as decent car as possible... this was not as easy as I ...

I bought my 1.4s Golf 6 years ago now. At the time of purchase, the car was 3 years old. Approaching the big ten - zero, this car looks and drives ever bit as well as it did when I got it. My main reasons for buying it was that it is a group 3 insurance, so surprisingly cheap to insure! The cabin offers ample space for 5 adults and the boots is by no means small. The build quality is an classic example of VW, you just can't compare it to a Ford, Citroen or Vauxhall. I have covered 75,000 miles, and in that time I have had no major repairs. Expect normal wear and tear like tyres, brake pads and maybe a back box for the exhaust. I would recommend changing the oil every ... Read the complete review

We bought this car after hiring one for a week and thinking it was great. We were going to buy a 1.6 diesel version but found it too slow to accelerate and cumbersome around town. After driving an audi 2.0 diesel I was a bit worried about motorway performance in a 1.4 petrol car but found this car to be ok even on the motorway - it has enough welly to get you out of trouble if you need to overtake etc. The boot space is ample for a pram/pushchair and the rear air con is great for the baby too. We toyed with getting (and waiting) for the bluemotion version but realised that actually you get similar specification for your money. Whilst it's not as economical as the ...

Brought this car after a tree in my work carpark blew over crushing my Mondeo, was after a slightly smaller more economical car and German cars seem to have a good reputation for reliability, I have owned it for just over a year now. The Golf its self is a very solid car, it feels safe and there's enough room in the front and back for shopping and kids, road noise is limited as this model has improved sound dampening over the last. The ride its self is smooth although cornering the car tends to have alot of roll in the corners more so than say the Ford focus that my partner drives. So far its been very reliable have only needed to replace ... Read the complete review
