Car history

Post by Drumop on Tue Nov 04, 2008 8:08 pm

That's me had the Jetta for a week now, 400 miles and 45mpg will do for me as most of that was short journeys. I was going to do a for and against list but I haven't found anything I don't like about the car yet, it's probably the best car I've ever bought.

It got me thinking about the cars I'd owned before.
Here's my list.




Morris Mini 850
Ford Escort x3 1.3 1.3 1.6
Austin Maxi 1.5
BL Marina x3 1.3 1.3 1.8
Datsun 120Y (stolen never recovered.....Thank you...Thank you...Thank you)
Pug 309
Talbot Alpine
Ford Granada 2.8 Ghia
Nissan Bleubird 2.0 GL
Vx Cavalier 2.0GL
Mazda 626 Montrose GL 2.0
Ford Mondeo 2.0 GL
Citroen Xantia SX 2.0 TDI
Ford Focus 1.6
Citroen C5 2.0 LX HDI
Citroen C4 2.0 VTR+
Volkswagen Jetta TDI SE DSG

A few dogs in there ( 3 MARINA'S!!! WHY...WHY...WHY???) but some nice cars too

Now it's your turn.
