There comes a time in everyone’s life when aesthetics become far less important than performance. While you might have thought that owning a stylish car was the best move in the past, these days you probably just want something that can get you from A to B without breaking or costing hundreds in fuel, right? Well, considering all that, I’ve spent half an hour writing this post today with the intention of highlighting some of the most popular reliable cars available on the market today. Regardless of your own personal tastes and preferences, opting to buy one of the models listed below is guaranteed to be a good more. Sure, you might not turn that many heads when you stop at the traffic lights, but who wants all that attention anyway?
I’ve had my fair share of good looking vehicles over the years, so I do understand why some of you might feel attracted to them. Even so, if you have a family to think about, functionality should always be superior to appearance, as I’m sure you understand. With that in mind, here are some suggestions to get you started…
In the past, the Passat would have been considered a car mainly for business use, but thanks to improvements in design and a more economical engine, the new models are perfect for just about everything. Whether you spend most of your time traveling long distances, or even if you only take short journeys around your local area, you really can’t go wrong. Also, it might be worth mentioning that companies like Listers.co.uk and their competitors actually lease these models, so you don’t have to spend a fortune if you don’t want to.
Some people might think the Picasso looks a little dated these days, but as we’re not focusing on aesthetics, this shouldn’t put you off too much. Anyone who’s ever owned one will already know how reliable they are, and just how economical they are too. The best thing about this model is the size though. So, if you have a couple of children and a partner to think about, the Picasso should definitely have a place at the very top of your list of considerations. It might not be the fastest vehicle in the world, but as it’s illegal to travel above 70 mph, who cares?
BMW 3 Series
It goes without saying that you’ll have to spend a lot of money to get a good BMW, but in my own opinion, they’re worth the expense. Just look online at some second hand car websites, and you’ll see hundreds of people selling models from this manufacturer that are over 20 years old. The reason for this is that BMW cars are built to last, and so even ones constructed in the 1980s are still around today. While parts can be expensive, things don’t go wrong that often, so owning a reliable BMW shouldn’t break the bank.
Thanks for reading guys, I hope this post has been of some use. I’ve got to head off now because it’s Friday, and I’ve booked an appointment to view a new S Class. I’ll let you know how I get on.
