Problem here is the purchase price ...Fords have a higher price (often unjustified) so to get a Ford in his budget is probably going to be older and higher milage meaning more wear and tear ...Other options include Fiat Panda (could be a wise choice as its insurance is cheaper and most are 30 road tax ), a Citreon C1, C2, C3 or C4

My super sonic sonar radar will help me!
