Buying A Car On A Tight Budget

You don’t have to save up for months to buy a car. If you’re on a tight budget and need something fast to help get you around, there are options out there. You’ll probably have to set your expectations low – you’re not getting a Mercedes. But you shouldn’t settle for something straight out of the scrapyard either. Here are just a few tips for buying a car on a tight budget. Continue reading

Traffic Fury: On The Motorway

Here’s another of my Traffic Fury rants. This time we had occasion to drive to Western-super-Mare the other day which entailed using the M4 and M5, possibly the most boring stretches of motorway ever. To entertain and inform we decided to keep actual real notes about driving standards; a sort of automotive version of Ten Green Bottles. This is the plain, unvarnished account of misdemeanours witnessed: Continue reading

Leave It To The Drivers

Peugeot 308 SW Has Space To Spare

Car reviews are only ever one person’s opinion. What suits one jaded journo may not suit another. By and large though the Peugeot 308 SW with its vast boot has garnered praise across the board without generating a whole lot of excitement. That’s how I think of it too. If it were food the car would be a cheese sandwich or a fruit bun; no real taste sensations yet they deliver a feeling of being satisfied. That’s the thing about the 308 Station Wagon, it delivers on comfort, economy and space and is the ideal vehicle for getting the job done without fuss. Ah, I seem to have reached a conclusion at the beginning; never mind, let’s press on with…. Continue reading

The Apprentice: Brexit Round

The State Of Our Roads

Ah yes, the state of our highways; a matter of long-standing, much discussed concern. Sadly, little progress seems to have been made because the condition and maintenance of Britain’s local roads continues to disappoint many UK drivers. Motoring Organisation the RAC have issued their Report on Motoring (HERE) which has found that 51% of road-users think local road conditions have worsened in the past year. Continue reading

How Will Brexit Affect Irish Motorists?

The issue of Brexit is unavoidably going to affect pretty much every economic question regarding the UK for the next decade at least, and probably beyond. Nowhere is this more in evidence than across the Irish Sea, where Northern Ireland is leaving the EU and its neighbour to the South is staying in. Continue reading
