The husband and I have been thinking of getting a new car. That means for us getting a Vauxhall, not because we particularly like Vauxhall, but because there is an excellent Vauxhall Garage (Murketts of Cambridge if you want to know), about five minutes walk from our house. That means you can take the car in without having to worry about the "courtesy car" to get you back home. And anyway they are extremely nice (by which I mean when you have a silly problem that you ought to be able to solve yourself, they solve it for you and dont treat you as an idiot). We have been going there for 20 tears or so.
So the garage is a done deal, and if that means a Vauxhall, so be it. We've never had any problems (except the clock on our last one is always running slow, and the sat nav isn't state of the art... but that isn't a big deal).
Anyway, we had kind of decided that we would get a new Corsa. In the old days, we had needed something a bit more capacious with the kids, but now a little Corsa is quite big (and good) enough for us.
However, when I got back from Italy, the husband was on the point of changing his allegiance. He had just been sent the new Corsa brochure. Illustration on the first page is above.
