    Vehicle : Ford Kuga

    Trim : Titanium

    Engine : 2.0dtci

    Year : 2014

    Mileage : 1200

    Default Who's the Dreamer

    While I was out front lunchtime, checking cars in daylight and AGing the glass, a group of people from the house opposite (the nosy ones) were clustered around 3 cars, one a small 4x4. Couple said hello, we spoke on and off.
    While I was finishing the Vec windscreen, I heard the mother say to her BF something about "well, if you feel that way, why not ask Ian if he'll swap you for 'that'," pointing at the Vec. He replied "Not a chance"
    I hadn't taken much notice of it, but between Wendy and I, we reckon it was a Suzuki Jimny, and not a new one. Why the hell would I want to downgrade?
    By my reckoning, even with current Vec prices mine would be worth more.
    Or am I way out of touch?

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRI NAV XP

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 72K

    Somebody's clearly taking the ****. The Jimny is a real oddball, cheap and nasty, costing about half the price of a Vectra, recently dropped by Suzuki. A 4x4 with a 1.3 petrol engine, you gotta be joking. Novelty value only - and that soon wears off. Terrible to drive, thirsty and an embarrassment to those who have owned them. I know someone who traded one in for a Citroen C3 Pluriel - another oddball car - even that was a great improvement.

    Take it you're not a fan John?

    You're right though, he's taking the ****. Then again, also possible he said not a chance because he knew there's no way it would even be worth asking?

    If someone owns a car, to them it's the Bees Knees - even if there's no logic to it. Decades ago I had a Cavalier Mk3 saloon, then my neighbour bought one as well, and said to me "I'm glad I bought the bigger one than yours". "Do you mean the engine size?" I asked. "No, it's just a bigger car all round". WTF?

    Funily enough, one of Wendy's friends has a C3 Pluriel......from the tone, I don't think he meant it in my favour, but then, this is the family who's college qualified mechanic son thinks low profile means illegal tread depth......
