Hello and welcome

Tried an Alto many years ago. Not my cup of tea. The Panda is so much better in all ways.

Re: new car new member

Bought my 56 plate Panda from new which I had for 7 years and apart from new shocks did not give me any grief.

traded it in for a new Suzuki Alto a few years ago, but was never really happy with it overall. Very poor paintwork wafer thin metal on car,crap stereo,floor pan felt very thin. On the plus side it drove well, better acceleration than Panda and far better fuel consuption.

Decided to bite the bullet on Tuesday though, traded it in for a pre reg 15 plate Panda with only 6 miles on clock although car reg with dealer in March. Trade in price for Alto was ridiculously bad but got brand new Panda for 6288 so very chuffed.

Panda is still very sluggish compared to Alto, though I do tend to drive fairly slowly. Build quality on Panda is far superior
