    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.

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

    Re: Worst Car History

    This is my list - probably not complete due to failing memory:

    First car – 1935 Morris 8 – had electric fuel pump which needed a rest after about 20 miles
    Ford Taunus – quite nice for a couple of years in Cyprus butleft it there.
    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
    Toyota Avensis Estate1.8 petrol – not exciting but did me proud over many miles.
    A later Toyota Avensis Estate 1.8 petrol – similar but better
    Skoda Superb Estate – 3.6 petrol auto 4x4 Laurin and Klement – I love driving again.
