    Re: Worst Car History

    Being relatively young i have only owned 3 cars, none of which were brand new..

    2001 Ford Focus- Bought while at Uni, fantastic wee car for the money. Never missed a beat.
    2011 BMW 1 Series Coupe- Bought when I started my new job
    2015 VW Golf R- Recent purchase of about 2 weeks ago- fantastic fun

    BMW was a lovely drive, but the Coupe shape and 2 door made it difficult to transport anything other than a golf trolley.

    Have driven quite a few other cars through the years which were a bit, emm, different.. one being my sisters old Salmon pink Suzuki Swift, think it was a 1997 and had butterflies up the side of it.

    I did for a short time have a Vauxhall Astra which I gave to my wife and she turned it into an Astra Compact. She went up the back of a car in front and wrote it off.

    Re: Worst Car History

    Not been driving for that long. Didn't have the need until we had kids. Since then the cars I've owned are:
    11 plate Vauxhall Meriva. Got rid pronto when we found out it had been in an accident previously
    64 plate Peugeot 208 actually not a bad car. Terrible performance, but great on fuel efficiency. But small though. MrsP wrote it off. Boo.
    14 plate Honda CR-V. Great for space for the family.

    Marina Hatchback

    There is a memory.

    I had one as a company car.

    What I used to love about was the ease with which the back end used to break away going round corners at speed but the front end was like driving on rails -Tokyo drift.

    Re: Worst Car History

    Had far too many to mention or even remember.
    It all began with a 1963 6v Beetle.
    The worst was undoubtedly my Moskvich 412 Saloon ...................... so dangerous.
    My best/favourite would be any of my three Austin Maxi's, my Montego Turbo's, my Alfasud my TR6 or my Wolf.
    Currently own a re-mapped Kia Cee'd CRDi and, of course, my LR Wolf.

    I had a Ford Cortina that I crunched into the back of another car. It was then a Ford Concertina.

    SAAB 96 3-cylinder 2-stroke really loved that car
    SAAB 95 estate (had children now) loved it but not as muchas the 96.
    Vauxhall Victor !!! bag of brown stuff.
    Citroen GS nearly as bad
    SAAB 99 another with fond memories
    SAAB 9000 auto a lovely drive
    VW Passat GL5 2-litre 5-cylinder, another lovely car todrive with plenty punch.
    Audi 100 estate another 2-litre 5-cylinder a beauty(pity I wrote it off, losing it on loose chippings)
    Audi 100 saloon a 2.2litre 5-cylinder another lovely car to drive.
    VW golf auto not nice, auto made it heavy and nopower-assisted steering.
    VW Jetta unexciting but reliable
