    Default Used Car Roadshow

    Just watched this programme. They were all clapping the fat bloke because he negotiated a 'great' deal on a used £20'000 Mercedes.........he got him 12 months tax but no reduction in price!

    Wish I'd got him in when I bought my car. With negotiating skills like that, it makes the £7000 I got off car look like amateur night

    The bloke is a complete Muppet, two shows ago he had picked three hatchbacks one of which was an AUDI A3 three door, and commented that "AUDI sadly never made an A3 five door"! And if you remember the very first series of the post VBH & Tiff Top Gear he was the used car Guru and brought the tone of the show down. He soon got the push in the next series!

    All he ever rants on about is what a bargain the cars are as they have depreciated so much. We all know they are a bargain when you first own them but when it comes to selling them on they soon become a liability!

    Hellow ladies & gentleman and welcome to a new series of Top Gear, in this weeks program we'll be testing lots of different cars, and depending on who gave us the biggest bung will determine which one we will recommend you buy.

    Anyway enough of that and on with the show, 1st up I test the all new Ford Mondeo, yeeees Ford have been busy creating another new model for me to plug the butt out of,and I can assure you this one can't be driven from the back seat, or neither does it have a celery holder! but what it does have that the Vectra doesn't is a reflective dashboard, great for doing your hair in the screen if you're late one morning, also it features ABS,DAB,DVD,ALB,PAS,AFL,DHL,PAL,VAL and Dave, inside they've though of everything, there's even a handy space to mount your German Shepherd in so he doesn't have to sit in the boot on those long journeys, anyway enough of that time to test it on our track, now, some say he's a clone of Jeremy Paxton in a Kevin Keegan perm wig, and that he bites his toe nails, all we know is his name is the Stig.
