Thanks for the advice guys.

The Clio has been a great car for me, 100% reliable for 120,000, still looks good and does everything I want.

Anything else that I want is going to be 13,000+ and I can do a lot of repairs to the Clio even just on the lost interest of 13,000.

I think I will keep it for another year.

I'd say you've made a wise choice. Better the devil you know than the devil you don't right?

If you're able to do most of your own repairs then you're already saving a small fortune. Sounds like you've got an ideal car! Our megane is a nightmare to do anything to...

I agree with the maths, unless you really want a swap.
Just because it cost 700 last year doesn't mean it will cost the same this year.
Another year will help you recoup more of the 700 you spent last year by getting more use out of the car.
