    Completely off topic!
    I'm going shopping for a new car tomorrow. Any suggestions? It has to be big enough for me, my husband and little one plus enough boot space for his pram.
    Thanks in advance x

    I have thanks. I was just wondering if there were any cars people had now that they would / wouldn't recommend.
    I have a juke now and the boot space isn't good for the pram but it is a nice drive.

    I too am in the car market (after writing mine off in an accident a fortnight ago). I was told some years ago you can't beat German or Japanese for reliability. I did have a Toyota and it was great, sailed through every MOT, solid as a rock (until I crashed it :mad:). It you want cheaper more accessible parts, then Ford. The thing is with a car, it's personal taste and budget. I would go to a large car supermarket so you can see a lot of brands under one roof and sit in them and get a general feel if you like it or not. It doesn't mean you have to buy from there if you don't want to. Hope that helps.

    Me and hubby hav a 08 astra. I find its a medium sized car, we find it easy to fit our LO in his car seat with enough head space to not worry about hittin his head on the way in. I also find the boot big enough for his pram with a few bags of shopping.
    We both feel its a nice and safe drive as theres weight to it so grips the road well

    Happy car hunting :)
