My little rover which I've been happily driving for the past 10 years has sprung a leak! I whisked her off to a garage for a diagnosis and it wasn't good. Head gasket madam and your radiator is knackered as well. £500 to fix it, car worth £300 so not going down the repair route then.
So now I am on the hunt for a replacement which I have to say am finding a little stressful. This is partly due to my indecisive nature, and the fact that I get a bit panicky when faced with a large purchase and no money back returns policy. Anyway after much internet searching and driving the OH slightly mad with my silly girly questions I'm gonna go for a Ford Focus. Reliable, economic to run some nice luxury touches like a heated windscreen and one ginormous boot that I can. as he says, fit all my 'crap' in lol!
Now all I have to do is find one that is in my price range.
