I've been offered a job that although will give me a payrise, I would also quite like to move out nearer into the city possibly with my other half to make life easier for the both of us. Currently I'm still living at home, but I don't know if I can keep up running & saving for repairs should anything go wrong with my A3. a 2.0TDi isn't really a city commuter car, but it is perfect for my commute now. I'm not saying it is a definite, but if I were to "downgrade" to a smaller engined petrol for city driving, what would you reccommend that wouldn't cost more than £7k? Corsa D? Astra Mk5? Fiat Bravo? Ford Focus? VW Golf? It'll need to be cheap(er!) to repair should anything go wrong so hence the first being Vauxhalls and the last being the VW!
