Our old Micra while mechanically sound is now decomposing beyond the point of no return. That coupled with the lack of mod cons such as ABS, seat belt pretensions, airbags, aircon, central locking and a working radio means it is time to find a replacement.
Small car with no more than 60K on the clock.
Petrol, manual with 90ish bhp so it’s not frustratingly slow.
Most importantly - reliable and cheap to maintain. We’ve had the Micra for 9 years and will probably keep the replacement for at least 5.
Want to spend £2.5 to £3.5K - private or trade.
A Yaris is high on my list along with a newer Micra and a massive old Volvo natch
What other solid, 10yr old small cars should we consider please?
