Poll and Pre-poll thread (see what I did there?) I learned in a Ford Focus, and found it very easy to drive. I think they're quite expensive though. I'll be using it to get to work when it's too cold to cycle. No more than total 30 mins. We'll use it to go visit Birmingham, the West Country and Portsmouth about once a month. We'll use it three or four times a week during the week to run-around. My wife has 3 years no claims. I have none. We are both clueless about fixing things if they go wrong. Money is variable. We might spent a grand, or we might buy a new Ford Focus. What are the pros and cons? Any suggestions?
