Chevrolet Aveo 2013 diesel. To save money on fuel. I want something faster, because or my previous car history:

Subaru Forester STi '04
Toyota Celica GT '06
Toyota Supra twin turbo '93
Ford Fiesta 1.4 '94
Ford Escort 1.2 or so (older!)

I have a red 2012 SEAT Ibiza 1.2 S (AC), to give it its full title! It's a bit slow but it's a great size for me and the fuel economy is helpful for uni, with the air con on I'm still getting around 46MPG across a fortnight.

WOW! That millage is amazing! Is it a Diesel?

No it's a 3 cylinder petrol. It's actually pretty bad for most European cars of today, cars around that size now will do mid 50s easily.

1998 Honda Civic LX! Completely stock. No V-TEC unfortunately, so it never kicks in bro.

Still a good reliable car though. One that won't break down, DiRTKING808.

That’s why I got her. I like the faithful type.  ;) Thanks.

Volvo XC70 2006, good enough for all my needs, spacious and built like a tank!

My previous Golf was a diesel and I got 60mpg average. The highest average I got was 70mpg, but that was conscious effort to see how high I could get it.  ::wink:

You say that, yet the 3 cylinder petrol engine in mine gets me an average of 45.6. Although it does have a little turbo, and I like to accelerate hard so I can hear it :p

When I'm on the motorway cruising at 70 in 6th gear though, I'm getting 80+mpg which is pretty cool.

Except when Martin is in the car with you urging you to do 85mph.

I've gotten pretty good at ignoring him when I'm driving lol. He picked me up to go see Infinity War the other night, and there was numerous times I thought we were going to crash :| I don't think there was any point where he did the speed limits.

Haha I'm quite heavy footed as well. I haven't taken mine far yet (although I'm going to the IoM TT, Derbyshire and Silverstone this summer) so I don't really know what it'll do on a long run. I'd imagine mid 50s at least.

I saw that movie last night as well. It was awesome!

I have a VW Up as a daily runaround (though I try to commute to work on bike whenever possible). My weekend toy is:

Yep! I did have a classic shape Impreza project car in mind, but I bought a house a couple of years ago, so I have been concentrating on getting that sorted and decided to keep the finished Subaru for now!

Is that really your Subaru Impreza WRX STi, tbtstt? I would love on those, in the WRC Blue Mica colour. They look great in this colour and are fantastic cars. I would love to own, as a second car.
