I have been deliberating whether to change my fiancees car. It's a 54 plate Volvo S60 D5 SE with about 80k miles on the clock, and was previously used by me. The Volvo appears to be worth around £3000-£3500. She is by no means a car person, but does feel that the Volvo isn't the sort of car she would like given the choice. She also has a decent job so image wise parking the Volvo in the car park each day isn't a great look. Given my fiancee has little interest in cars I see no point in spending much money on changing, but wonder if I could get something she'd prefer for around £4k. The sort of cars she likes is the Seat Leon / Mazda 3 / Ford Fiesta / Skoda Octavia / Quashqai. She doesn't like cars like the Mini, Fiat 500, Mondeo. I personally have a soft spot for a Mk2.5 MX-5. She did like the idea of going for a soft roader (e.g. Qashqai / Volvo XC60 / Q3), but I really don't see the point spending £10k+ for a second car when she has to little interest in cars. She drives around 10k miles per year so definitely petrol and practicality is not an issue. Be great to hear your thoughts.
