Ok guys, looking for people who actually know their car stuff, not you wannabe "I watch top gear so I know my shit" people! I need a car for work. I need advice as to a nice cheap, fun and reliable car. It needs to be fuel efficient (so probably diesel) as I'll be relying on millage claiming to make me some extra cash (I reckon a 50mpg car would net me about £2.5-3k extra a year after tax). It needs to be cheap (I have about £5k for car, insurance and taxes) It needs to be fun. I don't want a shitty smart car, I would like to enjoy my car! I have been looking at the Honda Civics but they tend to be a little pricey, but I know Honda is reliable whereas thinks like Pergeots and Renaults are cheaper but tend to get more issues. SO yeah, advice is very welcome as I've never been a car person and this would be my first motor.
