My wife has past her driving test!
 
At last I'm a free man!:lol:

After weeks of searching for a car, all of which were the wrong colour, too big, the wrong shape etc etc, she finally found one she liked. We didn't have a lot to spend, about $3000, so we drove through to Glasgow and picked this up;

A Vauxhall Irmscher Astra SXI;

Vauxhall's are very common over here. I can't imagine you'd ever see one in the US. My first car was a vauxhall and I've owned two others since. They were all very reliable and I never had any problems with them. But once I bought my first Jeep, that was it.

It's 46mpg according to the manual and about 35mpg around town, but then it is only a 1.6ltr engine.

Gas here at the moment is anywhere from 1.16 - 1.29 per litre in rural areas. That should be my rough calculations at 1.16 about $6.57 a gallon.

I don't even look at the price now, just fill it and pay up:lol:
