I spend a lot of the evening searching, checking reviews, researching CAR MODEL fault/problem/help right up to the early hours.
It must be a similar, compact but spacious size. Modest VED, low insurance, fuel efficient,good safety figures, automatic with air con. All within Ã‚Â£4k ideally. To be a contender, with the emphasis on replacement, it needs full service history and only 20k on the clock.
Then, last night whilst exploring the alternatives and having increased my search to "National" I started finding cars of a reasonable age, with mileage under 60k..oh hang on...in the description of these tidy looking vehicles it says ...catD repair.
..the car I'm trying to replace is cat D.
The insurance need to know if the vehicle you want to insure has been cat D. . . we seem to be going in circles.
