Hey, that's just mean... You must be getting mixed up with the Dacia Sandero car, the Sandero Stepway is a whole new ballgame, mini SUV-crossover type thing.

I find the shape very sexy, they look like those 4x4's you get up in the snowy mountains with the Ski's on the roof-racks.

I can't fault ours, cheap to run and maintain.

Similar to the dream cars thread, my dream car is not for everyone

I recently picked up a 2019 Vauxhall Grandland X 1.2 turbo (petrol) - not my Car however i put the first 900 miles on the clock.

the engine seems decent - 130ps from a 1.2 and it sounds Good (3 cylinder I'm sure)


too much I don't like about New Cars tho - r.e this one in particular - auto wipers, auto lights, lane departure warning, start/stop, electronic Parking Brake, (occasional) Speed limit displayed (suggesting there is some kind of GPS Signal being sent/received) what feels like electronically assisted steering(?) (light but lacking feedback) Build Quality(feels like it's designed to be Recycled) Traction Control, Electronic Stability Control....... Can I not just Drive and be in control myself



I won't say the Grandland is my Nightmare Car - just ANY New Car



My 75 is the Car of my Dreams and my Nightmares

The Start/Stop feature is a pain in the posterior, thankfully Dacia had the sense to included a On/Off switch, this gives the driver full control on whether to use the feature or not.

For me it has to be “Postman Pat’s car” the Nissan Cube. Like something out of a cartoon. Next time you spot one try not to use bad language!

For those who are mildly interested:
The Nissan Cube is a mini MPV produced by carmaker Nissan since 1998. Initially sold only in Japan, the Cube was sold in North American markets from 2009 to 2014, and in European markets from 2009 to 2011. ... Since 2014, the Cube has once again been sold only in Japan

Five or seven seater, we nearly bought one once.
