I remember saving up for my first car. It’s a big thing when you have passed your driving test and find it’s time to get a car. Cars can be expensive, bottomless pits for money. I should know! There are always some unknown expenses that ruin your car’s budget. My second car was I suppose effectively known as a lemon. There was always something going wrong with it.
I loved my blue Citroen C3 she was an exclusive demonstrators model so had every optional extra you could find for the age of that car. She, well I always called her my baby blue car, had front arm rests, built-in sat nav and an extra parcel shelf so the boot had two levels. For a 2003 car it was top of the range.
I suppose being a top of the range ex demonstrator model was a blessing and a curse. The thing was with it having extras, the engine and other parts around the body were different to the “normal” C3 model and when it went wrong the garages found it hard to get replacement parts.
