    Do some maintenance runs every 2 weeks, otherwise the brakes bind, the tyres wear from being in the same position, the oil drops down, and the battery goes flat

    Default Brits to shift to used cars

    1.5k on a new car will not be changing my car buying habits. In fact I was relieved when it was that amount. A lot of people do 3 year finance, so I cannot see £500/year making much difference.

    Yeah, my Dad said the same (my real one, not Mordac).

    It's usually fine if I use it every 4 - 6 weeks.

    Either go cheap and cheerful or go expensive and make sure it's bloody secure at night. Too many car thefts going on at the moment.

    On a plus note, filled up at less than £1 per litre for the first time in years at weekend.

    I filled up in Dorchester on 15th March. Still have over half a tank left. I think I paid around £1.28/l

    The last fill up was half a tank when the oil prices went into freefall (needed unfortunately).
    I've seen Morrisons and Costco under £1/Litre.
