The new little runaround

Back in a fiat, well the Mrs is!

Picked up this last month, wasn't looking for one it kind of found me!

It's immaculate with the most comprehensive service history I've ever seen.

1.3 MJ so 30 tax, nowhere near as slow as I'd expected!

Nothing special but I actually really like it, really fun to drive

Those wheel trims need to go!

Looking to buy a bigger house so keeping monthly outgoings down running older cars

Re: The new little runaround

These are my favourite Panda, got to drive all of them from 1.1 up to 100hp and the MJ is probably the sweet spot.

The fact it has a thoroughly respectable mid range compared to the petrol ones makes to feel pretty nippy iirc. At least until you run out of revs.

Yeah agreed, 10bhp and 45nm makes a night and day difference, my mother and uncle have had their 1.2 pandas from new in 2006 and they've been brilliant both on over 110k now.

Not much to look at but cheap parts and easy to work on, surprisingly fun to drive!

We even managed a long weekend away in it with the baby, roofbox of course but still!

Oh and the mpg is actually as they claim, I never thought it could hit high 60s around the doors but it does
