The Honda the porsche or the bentley?
The latter two, I suspect :)

Stick to a golf or a volvo.

I'll be giving the Golf to my daughter, when I buy a Volvo.
I have to stick another Volvo on the drive, when people come round they joke that the drive looks like a Golf showroom!

Yes, I meant a Bentley. Having said that, I do find it hard to believe that they are the least reliable after seeing a programme on how they are made.

Vauxhall Viva taken in North Yorkshire circa 1965.
The beautiful young woman is me wife, herself a Yorkshire lass.

That's the year I was born. She does look like a beautiful lass Wotan.
Do pass on my compliments and admiration for her.
As to the car  :ROFL:
Seriously, it is amazing how automotive technology has progressed.
Thanks so much for sharing your photo.
I'll dig up some of mine and post them sometime.

The Haynes manual was not for you to get your hands dirty. I said it so you may park it on your bookshelf, by way of appreciation for the car.

A Vauxhall Viva HA, no less.  :)

A bit surprising that Bentleys aren't that reliable - VW own them and I would have thought the legendary VAG build quality would have applied. *pauses* Ah - VWs & Audis aren't as reliable as they once were in the 1980s.

I quite fancy a Honda for my next car. Maybe a 'blue rinse special' Jazz (Fit).

don't think very many people would get a warranty direct policy to cover their Bentley ... tiny samples can very easily throw up misleading info

Looking at the artical the average repair cost is a factor bit if you look at it as a pecentage of the csrs vslue thrn thongs change quite a bit a 300 repair on a honda jazz seems a lot comparded to a 700 repair on a Bentley Contonental  GT with yhree times as many cylinders and 4wd.  Same goes for the Audi RS6 noted for its 'unreliability' and repair costs as we know they are driven by the most saintly drivers, in fact aren't Bentleys and RS Audis driven by footballers and their wags? Wonder if this makes up the average?
