I am in the market for a new car as my trusty Peugeot, which I have had for fifteen years, is at the stage where things need to be done to it. The air-conditioning has packed in twice now so it is time to find a new car. What a mine-field that is.
I thought it would be relatively easy to work out what I wanted but there are so many additions on offer that need to be taken into consideration. I think I have narrowed it down to two models but I now need to consider the economics of purchasing either a diesel or petrol model. The cost of servicing is also a consideration that needs to be taken into account. I wish there was some sort of button that you could press that would calculate for you, on average, how much it would cost to run each model over a certain time and distance, taking into account the cost of servicing and fuel along with the original cost of the vehicle. Wishful thinking.
