Good evening fellow RRers. The time has come to purchase a new motor (as I understand is the modern vernacular) but this time I have specific requirements. It is no exaggeration to say that I am to cars what Norway Chris is to photography. Or truth. I have about 3.5K to spend and really do need a low fuel-consuming little chap as my main use is work which entails countless short trips around Plymouth. There will be the odd longish haul - Leicester and Hastings are planned before the end of the year, but usually Ivybridge is bandit country for me. I do a fair mileage (about 12K a year I suppose) and nothing too 'hairdresser' please, but the fuel consumption is pretty important. I don't need a speed machine - that will come when the mortgage is paid off. Me old mucker Ballistic is going to be advising, as is Guzzler Jr. though he has enough on his plate and is a zillion miles away, but any advice would be appreciated. Honda 'Jazz' and Skoda have been suggested so far - any comments on those? Ta all.
