Cars in ReviewSo over the past few months I've been on a few road trips & each time gotten a different type of car to drive. Some of them have been better than others, but I've decided to give you my thoughts of them:
First there was the Alfa Romeo's Alfa 159, which I drove from Glasgow to Inverness and back last November. It was an automatic, which made it easier to drive on the "wrong" side of the road. It was very roomy and had lots of power. We even had to drive it through a bit of snow, rain, and hail and I never once worried about traction or handling.
Next, I think was a Skoda, which I drove from London to Nottingham, up to Manchester, and back to London. It was the Fabia model to be exact. Now I've looked it up online and it is a good price, but in my opinion NOT a car I would ever hire again, let alone buy!! It had no power, was not particularly comfortable and overall was just a hunk of junk in my personal opinion.
For our East Anglia trip we had a Ford Focus, which I'm guessing is very similar to the ones you get in the US and being nearly double the price of the Fabia Skoda, I would have to say well worth the extra money!! It seems similar in size, but the comfort is a vast improvement to the Skoda. I enjoyed driving the Focus around :)
This past weekend, we had the luck of receiving a VW Golf and this car is tied with the Focus for best small car I've driven thus far. It is about the same price as the Focus, but did not have as much zippy power as the Focus had.
I'm guessing the Alfa 159 is probably the most expensive car I've driven & to be honest, I wouldn't want an automatic, so if I had to buy one of the above cars, I'd go with the Ford Focus!
