There seem to be all sorts of stats showing that the car buying world is about to turn green.
The AA is at it now, revealing that half of us plan to take measures to go green this year. Changes to how we drive and own cars top the list.
Well, that’s a good thing. I would always encourage car buyers to make decisions that result in adjustments to how they drive and quite possibly what they drive. Then again, there’s a YouGov report that shows the prospect of taking public transport is still less appealing than cadging a lift in a car. Of course it is. It’s more comfy. So let’s just go for a comfy journey.
I’ll do the green thing next time. Right now, we want an automatic gearbox, sound deadening and an unfashionable saloon format. A 1999 Honda Accord 1.8 i-VTEC SE would seem to be rather unsaleable these days, but with 116,000 miles, service history and a few months of MOT, this seems like a nice way to travel for £349. You should get a full year out of it before you get bored.
