New car for Mum
My mum is thinking of buying a new (second hand) car.
Her S reg Corsa TD has rust on nearly every panel and now the clutch has gone, so she looking to change it.
My sister has advised her to buy a new car under the scrappage scheme but with a maximum budget of £4000 it would mean taking out finance and she doesn't want to do that.
Mum is thinking of blowing all the £4000 on a car but my thinking is she should spend £2000 maybe £2500.
My thinking is, at that money she's unlikely to get much of a warranty and that a £4000 car could just as easily go wrong as a £2500 car and if she spends less on the car then she'll have money to repair it should it go wrong.
What would you do in this situation?
