After looking at the poll for average age here I see that i would be over average at 42.
I wanted to start a thread about the last cars you had and whether they were nightmares or great cars.
I got my first car in 1990 but big motorbikes were my main passion.
Car 1--1983 ford fiesta957cc-50k on clock when bought-- Did 55k miles in the year I had it with no trouble.--Great car.
car 2 1988 Toyota corolla saloon 1.3 cc--40 k on clock WB--mechanically sound except for heater ,a lovely spacious car sold also with 100k on clock.
car3--1992 Mazda 323f 1.6cc,22k on clock WB- handsome car (Debatable by some )did 20 k and had to sell as new kitchen was needed. Thirsty on petrol and parts very expensive--Loved this car.
car4--Rover 214 si--1990 reg-39k on clock when bought--very comfortable drive --BUT--bonnet lock broke,windscreen leaked,sunroof leaked,steering rack had to be replaced, rear hatchback hinges broke off,ecu was always giving trouble,clutch went, gearbox blew spilling oil all over new clutch plate so second clutch had to be put in.heated bk window stopped working,wheel bearings went,heater wouldn't work Then The head gasket -. All this in less than a year but after the 3 month warranty.--Nightmare car.
car5--Nissan almera 1996 reg 1.5-60k on clock WB--big ,comfy but wife was learning to drive and hit off evert kerb and gate pillar she went through--too big(for learning) but---great car( For me anyway LOL).
car6 Opel corsa 1997-11k on clock when bought 1.2reg--no PS so a nightmare in town-- zero pick up --ok car.
car7-- !Removed! import 323f gti 1.8-40k on clock when bought--wow -my favourite of them all--1990 reg --electric Everything--serious fast and comfortable--I put over 75 k miles in a year (I worked 8 miles away) loved driving this one. needed shocks -full exhaust and brake discs and pads--too old and not worth putting in the money--awesome /reliable car.
car8--Daewoo--1999 lanos saloon 1.4 SE--45 k on clock when bought--nice comfort for a cheapie. major fuel pump issues. Airbag module goes in most of them (600 euro )--kept this for 7 years--ok car (wouldn't buy one again if things got bad)just ok car.
car 9--(wife's daewoo lanos )--72k on clock when bought--1999 hatchback--comfortable -nice size for shopping and my welding plants/lawnmower etc (lol)never gave much trouble--good workhorse--ok car.
Car9 & 10 --scrapped both Daewoos 2010 fiesta for me(style 86hp)... we test drove everything in this class--I wanted the fiesta after about 1mile down the road on test drive.....she was going for the fiesta as well until she drove the skoda fabia (60hp-I think)and loved it's quirky looks and I bought it for her.
well that's me (At last)...

Second Car- 1996 Volkswagen Golf 1.8 SE, a little bit quicker than my previous car but had more weight. This car seemed to enjoy breaking down, its had a new exhaust cat thingy, headgasket, clutch, exhaust manifold and now the paintwork is going! BTW this is for sale.... any takers? thought not... Well its also been lowered 40mm and 17"alloys put on. So will miss her, shes still sat on my drive and i jsut want to take her for a spin... but i cant haha
Third Car- 2010 Ford Fiesta S1600- LOVE IT! Need i say more
