I finally decided that it was time to get a new car.... All my life I´ve never had a good car so to speak. In 1992 I got a five year old Skoda 120L, a junk car which only lasted about 2 years. Bought a 1991 Toyota Corolla in 1997. It was a good car and served me well until it had a meltdown in january 2003. In february 2003 I bought a 1998 Nissan Micra. Here's a piccie: It´s a small car, gets me around, and has a low fuel consumption. But, it´s a small car, it´s just like sitting in a tin can, not very exciting. Anyway, I´ve been longing for a better car now and yesterday I finally took the plunge.... I bought a 2005 model Skoda Octavia (Ambiente model). It´s only three months old, it´s been driven 5000km (3100 miles) and it's of course in excellent condition. It has got a 1.6l engine, 1600cc and it´s 102 horsepower. It has got an automatic transmission (Thank God!!), electricity in all windows and side mirrors and an information display which tells me about the fuel consumption per 100km etc. Fun stuff! I got a great deal on the car, I got a 28% discount off the car compared to what it costs brand new, and it´s only three months old! Sweet! Anyway, here are two obligatory pics: P.s. I LOVE driving automatics!! It´s my first one!
