2014 to 2017 Volvo XC60 2.0l
diesel auto leased from
new April 2014 to April 2017.  
Very nice car however it was
also very bland.  The wheels
corrode if you park next to a
2012 to 2013  Volvo
C70 2.4l diesel auto
bought this car to
replace my Merc. It
caught fire in 2013
due to an Automatic
gearbox fault. Total
2009 to 2012 Mercedes C220
CDi auto. I bought this 4 years
old and commuted 150 miles
per day for 3 years.  An excellent
2008 Citroen C5 2.0 Diesel auto.
I ran this car for 8 months.  
Appalling build quality and a  
gutless engine.  Absolutely the
worst quality materials used on
the inside.
2008 Citroen ZX 1.9 non turbo Diesel Auto. I
was working at a University so I needed a
cheap car to withstand car park rash.  The
ZX was rude, crude and full of character.  
Great fun and proved to be an excellent
cheap car.  I was travelling 185 miles per
day so I thought a newer Citroen C5 TD
would be better.  Oh dear, we all make
2013 to 2014 Mercedes ML270
diesel auto  I enjoyed driving
this car and I so wanted to love
it but the build quality was poor,
so many things went wrong in
the 8 months I owned it.  e.g.
Heater packed up, the ML
broke down 3 times on M6.  Put
me right off modern Mercs.  
ML's are built in the USA and
they are sh!te compared with
the Stuttgart built cars
Aug 2008 to Apr 2017 - Hilary's Peugeot
 1.6 Auto.  A nice car for the ladies.  
Long term ownership is not so clever with a
Peugeot, the folding roof required an £800 fix
and the solenoids went in the gearbox costing
another £600.
