2012 Volkswagen up Move Up!
Great little car, remember what it's designed for though
Bought this car for my wife. Wanted something cheap to run & tax.
Lovely car, great engine, quick enough for normal driving conditions, ride is a little uncomfortable on country roads, but saying that this is really a city car, so can't complain too much.
Brought the 5 door version, as our children are now 5 & 10, & the car has loads of leg room in the back for them. Also like the pop out windows in the back. It stops the kids winding down windows at 70mph, & getting that horrible thudding noise the wind makes.
The car has power steering, A/C, remote locking, and quite a big boot (enough for school bags, or a weeks worth of shopping).
Fuel mileage is great. Our previous car (1.6 Astra automatic) use to use around £40 a week in petrol; this uses £44 a fortnight.
Overall, a nice small car, with lots of cabin space. Only issue I have got is the radio display is a little bright when driving on a night, and you can't turn the brightness down. Besides that, it ticks all the right boxes.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
