I agree and also we seem to have lost some models that sold well or their new equivalent has died
Fiestas 2002-2009 cracking sellers - new ones can’t shift (see other thread)
Ibiza and Polo - again can’t shift now unless cheap as chips
Vectras and Astras - laugh if you want but we shifted loads. Hate insignia and the gearboxes in them and the new Astra’s
307s great sellers, 308s NOTHING but problems
Xsara Picasso brilliant cheap budget motoring and rarely any issues. C4 grand Picaaap maybe worst car ever made l.
Cant buy a load of v50s, s40s or v70s with the 1.6d as have too many issues
don’t want any ford auto power shift or early 2.2 engine so rules out a lot of those and Mazda 6s.
Micra - k12 flew out, newer ones stick, same with Yaris
probably loads more examples if I sat and thought about it
107/c1/Aygo seemed to fill the void left for starter cars when fiestas Yaris micra died a bit they now seem expensive , need to be sub 3k and also seem to be a decline.
Also used to love a Tigra or a 206cc. But won’t touch 207cc. And Astra twin tops are wank
Used to sell loads of Saab’s but now hard to source.
