Never heard of a maxima before now. Thats a long car.

Love hoe the Wikipedia page says "full size car". As opposed to what, a toy car?
Full size is basically the same size as a 5 series BMW or a Merc S class.

My 2008 Nissan Note 1.4 is still going strong.

It's a truly s*** car to drive but cheap as hell to run, maintain and insurance is about £40 a month full cover for me and the missus.

I do less than 2500 miles per year so fine for nipping to the local tip or supermarket.
I'm the same. I've got a 2004 Ford Fiesta LX, only done 18,000 miles and costs sweet fa to maintain and insure.

Gave up spending money on cars 20 odd years ago, they are just an expense. I treat them like any other appliance. I'm not going to change a toaster or a kettle until it stops working and have zero interest in upgrading just because a new model has come out and I look at cars in the same way.

My last car was a Golf R. Fantastic fun but ridiculously thirsty. When I got shot of it the dealership couldn't believe I did 60k in it
Yeah I had an Audi S3 two or three years ago and the MPG was similar but I do low mileage (c. 5,000 a year) so it's not really an issue for me. If I was doing 10,000-15,000 miles a year I'd go nowhere near it <laugh>
It was only 3 year old when I got rid of it <laugh>

Yeah, I only paid £2k for the car that died but a basic repair was £400-£500 and in addition it needed two new front tyres and the front suspension ball joint is cracked and in need of repair soon so financially I didn't want to throw money at it. Tax per year was also £325 as it's a 3.2L V6 engine, and insurance was a grand a year on it.

Cars are f***ing s***. I've had to shell out several hundred this year on my 57 plate Mondeo that cost me £1000 <laugh>. Hopefully that means I'll get another few years out of it providing nothing else goes wrong.

My other car is a 61 plate Laguna <laugh> I bought back in 2017. I crashed that twice which cost me about £1200 and then the electronic handbrake got stuck which cost about another £700. Other problems included snapped coil springs, the front nearside tyre constantly going flat and stuck calipers.

However, I will always continue to buy cheaper second hand cars as I can afford a couple of big expenses a year. My garage also has a 0% interest payment scheme so I just use that. I couldn't afford to chuck £300-£400 a month at a car on finance though.

It's been so long since MiniOT left the house, she forgot which direction the centre of town is.

I saw her stand out the front of the house and had to bring up Google Maps <laugh>

I can't tell if the person who came up with 'Eat Out to Help Out' is stupid or brilliant.
Probably like those intentionally bad memes they put out, draw more attention to it for further spread

Stamp duty holiday: no duty paid up to £500k. My partner and I are looking to move and this should hopefully save us about £6k. <diva>
I'm not normally a tory voter but it has to be said that Rishi Sunak has done a brilliant job with his handling of the coronavirus. The economic support packages he initially put in place and his announcements today have by far exceeded my expectations.
