hello everyone

what sort of car would you have if you owned one? and why ?

you have to take into consideration that you want it to be fill all your requirements, eg boots space insurance etc you know the kind of practical things you have to think about.

look forward to your views

my present car is a Renault mondus

    I had my ideal car and it was stolen and burnt out.
    RS 500 Ford Sierra Cosworth.

    I have a toyota yaris (old style) which I love to bits, and is surprisingly flexible for a tiny car. It gets a buggy and all the child related bumf in the back, is robust enough to go on a building site (work) and light and easy to manoeuvre with my rubbish joints, has a good driving position. Oh and is relatively cheap to run too.
    But my ideal car is a ferrari 360 spyder in Red, but ideally I would also not have RA and be a multimillionaire......back in the real world the Yaris will do for now.

    i tell you why i asked the question as we thinking of getting another car and we like the one we got, it can go from our house on the ferry 130 miles on £15 worth petrol, it has a boot you can make a bit bigger or smaller, when the boots made bigger i can get my scooter in, on our recent holiday we had 2 cases a bathlift and other stuff in the boot plus stuff on seat next to D and my mattress topper as well as things for D and got down and back ok, the seats are comfortable on a long journey for me anyway as we did have a ford fiesta and the seats where not as comfortable.

    I'd like one of these as well.

    Or a Volvo Drive C30 with stop/start, as you don't pay for tax as the co2 is low :D

    Hi

    My car is a Rav 4. the first model mreg . My OH has now takem the back seats out and put me a hoist in it. I used to have a lift on the back of it so that i had 4 seats but as my daughter has her own car and i am no longer needed for running her and friends around what was the point of 4 seats, It is perfect for me. Automatic and my OH moved the accelarator pedal to make it left foot drive when i had leg amputated.

    my OH has a diesel Toyota Avensis . That has a masive boot and gets my wheelchair and scooter plus hol clothes in with no trouble. (holdalls not cases)
    Oh! its a 04 plate the new avensis i am not sure about

    Hope you find your ideal car. we love ours.
