...is a car that doesn't explode. Just broke down making my final trip home for the year. Called the nice man from the AA, who unfolded the magic trailer from the back of his van (very Transformers) and off we go up the M40 to Oxford.
I think I'll be needing a new car (when I said explode, I meant it sounded exactly like someone had unleashed a bag of spanners under the bonnet), so if you have any recommendations I'm all ears.
For the record, the man from the AA said that Mercs and BMWs aren't as reliable as they used to be. Saab and VW are steady as she goes, as are Vauxhall and Ford. Stay away from the Renault Laguna and most Peugeots. And never knock a Skoda. That's what he said.
