    What's out there?

    Just a quick one lads, my nephew has started his apprenticeship and has to travel 50km to work. He is doing his full driving test in September when he turns 18. We are all chipping in getting him there and back at the moment so was wondering if anyone has a clean car or van they are selling. Preferable small petrol engine or diesel for insurance. cheers.
    Subaru, fast in any road condition

    Hello, The best of luck to him in his apprenticeship. My dad is selling is 1 owner from new. 1.2 petrol, Fiat Grande punto. 2006, silver 5 door. I have it in the for sale section here. I will be going over to his house later on today to take photos and will also upload to carzone for him. Might be something he may be interested in.

    I got these for sale:

    https://www.donedeal.ie/cars-for-sal...ia-09/18361196 - Strongly recommended, genuine low mileage, very nice car

    https://www.donedeal.ie/cars-for-sal...uence/19148184 - 1.5l diesel and automatic, very economical car - it averages between 4-5l on highway

    https://www.donedeal.ie/cars-for-sal...-note/18352454 - rough, but cheap, diesel too, good for highways, will serve him another few hundred miles

    https://www.donedeal.ie/cars-for-sal...a-1-2/18272507 - nice car, low mileage and quite 'new' a bit better equipped than the skoda. But given the mileage, the Skoda is still better bang for your buck
    He has the right to have and share his opinion. The fact that his opinion differs from reality, is however irrelevant.

    Insurance will prob be the decider for him, age of car an issue I'd say.

    Thanks very much, insurance is going to be the deciding factor so will pass these on and let him start doing his homework.
