So, my gf's crappy old Ka keeps breaking down, has had parts of the suspension changed numerous times this year alone, its cost her around £600 over the last couple of months. Now shes just out of uni and has started as a full time supply teachers so the pay really isny good until she completes hers teaching course. Car will be paid for with a loan, and whatever she manages to get for hers? (Ford Ka '52' 70k miles) I was thinking £3000 would be adequate to get a little, reliable runaround. Scrappage scheme is out of the question Any ideas? Small hatchbacks really.
