    My poor old Vw 02 reg car is in the garage tomorrow. Its not in the best of health and I get a feeling I might be getting some bad news from my mechanic. Just in case I have to start looking for another car, what car would you lads and lasses out there recommend from a trad point of view.

    Also, how quickly can you buy and get a car on the road.....dont want to lose too many days

    Not to sure what car but time wise if you buy a good one with mot and road tax you can get it on the road that day! Just need to phone you insurance company to change details, but some charge for it! mate had to pay £20-30 I think admin charge.

    Cheers rc.

    Must admit, mondeo estates look pretty good value. Not sure what the insurance would be.
