I can't afford to go through private sales, I need to rely on monthly repayments, which is why I am targeting dealerships.

Thanks very much for your reply. I couldn't remember if I'd made a thread previously, i thought i hadn't.
Wow, you still haven't decided... I remember a similar thread here about dumping the Corsa and going to a Mazda... Anyway, here are some thoughts:
1. How the hell does a 2007 car get the engine blown?
2. Then again, it's a Vauxhall, so not really surprising. (we call them Opel here, but they're the same, well, how do I put this without getting swear-filtered... yeah, you get the idea...)
3. I drive a 2008 Mazda2, so far I've done 85000km on it (that's almost 53000 miles) so how's the reliability? Well, when I bought it, I was expecting something good, but certainly not *that* good! 53000 miles later I am very happy to have chosen it.
4. Is it a girl's car? Demographics are probably 50/50 here. Maybe it is, maybe it isn't, it really depends who you ask. The question for me is:
a. Would I make my decision on a car based on such a perception (OK, I wouldn't buy a pink car, but you get my point)
b. As a driver who appreciated a good handling car, would I sacrifice that for a lousy handling macho car?
