    how do you choose

    yes im board ..!
    in a world of some many choices , is it possible to choose 1 car that does the lot
    certainly 1 pen knife is not like another
    1 pair of shoes is not like another etc etc etc

    so when choosing a car how do YOU choose ?

    comfort
    speed
    space
    practicality
    Looks
    reliabilty

    or do you not even think about it and go with your gut or how deap your pocket is

    We don't use the car that much any more so comfort, fuel consumption, tax, reliability, practicality in roughly that order.

    Somehow, if asked to guess, I would easily picture you in a Bug Convertible.

    I usually go with comfort and space as top choices. Though speed and reliability are pretty high on my list, as well.
    My current vehicle is a Lincoln Town Car with 250+ thousand miles on it. It will easily cruise all day at around eighty, holds plenty of luggage in the trunk (boot to you Brits) will comfortably sit four people, and I never give a thought about hopping in to take a road trip. With all those miles, its looks are probably its least appealing feature.

    Re: how do you choose

    used to be a big renault fan gor comfort and economy but got fed up with big repair bills same with citroen thiough of money was not a concern wouldn have a C5 just for the hydropneumatic suspension which was incredibly good it was the rest of their car that fell apart.

    Economy, reliability and running costs top the list the latter two wipe out any psa cars, vauxhall. Just sold a mazda 6 (over 100,000 miles on it) having had problems with the turbo and having looked at the cost of exhausts, clutch etc. when the bills look like they will be close to the value of the car it's time to go.

    Just bought a ford c-max only second ford I have ever owned used to find them really uncomfortable, 50 mpg in daily use 30mpg towing. Quite pleased so far.

    I expressly forbid the use of any of my posts anywhere outside of FG (with the exception of the incredibly witty 'get a room already' )posted recently.
    Folks who'd like to copy my intellectual work should expect to pay me for it.

    I'm trying to recall when I last had a car. Fifteen years ago. Nasty things. I got rid of the last one when people finally stopped asking me for lifts all the while.

    I'm quite sure trains, taxis and bus travel cost me a lot less than doing the same journeys in a car of my own. As a bonus, someone competent does the driving.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.
