Ayup from another new member to the fold.
The name is Ian and I live in Mid Cheshire , originally from Nottingham, and 4 years in Ibiza.
I've just purchased a 58 plate 1.6 tdi Style, to down size slightly from my 7 seat Vauxhall Zafira,(Petrol) which I purchased new in July 08, this was after having a Renault Megane Scenic (diesel) for 5 years.
Neither I nor the wife particularly liked it, and it has taken us two and a half years for us both to pluck up the courage to say so !! There were no real problems it was just the local Vauxhall dealers attitude, combined with the lack of visibility after the Scenic, that swung it for me
In the end I opted for a diesel again, more for the carbon footprint than the savings per mile, as I don't do a lot now, (semi retired,)although when we do go any where it's from the sublime to the rediculous, This past year has seen me drive to Cornwall twice, Kent three times , France once and the Lincolnshire coast at least 4 times along with a tour of East Anglia (Crikey , I hadn't realised how many miles I'd actually done, so there may be a bit of a saving to come then !!)
I couldn't afford a brand new one this time, so have part chopped for this C Max tdi Style, I've forked out a few quid extra and added a tow bar and front fogs.
Hopefully we'll enjoy this a lot better than the Zafira.
Here's to a lot more happy motoring.
