So, ~1 page in and you have a selection.

Which is it going to be?
You have 30 minutes to decide. It'd better be good.

Begin...

Er, not feeling that to be honest.

This has low mileage and good provenance:

Kia Love C'eed. Its actually a quality car. Had a 59 plate octavia before this and i liked that but this is much better than any other older kia ive been in.Think they will do what Skoda did. Have 5 or 6 years and their s**t reputation will go out the window!

Completely agree, same goes for Hyundai. At first they were cheap nasty Korean brand, then they came along and started building some really good cars, the i30 (iirc) is a genuine contender for the Focus now.

Also remember that if it weren't for Hyundai (with their then-unheard-of 5-year warranty) and then Kia trying to better them with the 7-year, we'd all still be being mugged off with two- or three-year warranties on cars which should really be built to last longer than that.
