    Learner driver looking for something below 1,500.00, cheap insurance and tax.

    Thinking of buying this car as it looks nice and is within my budget.

    Anyone driven this before?

    **puting it in quotes as i am unable to post my link for some reason.

    The 1.9 diesel engine will likely bump your insurance premium up.

    I would go for the 1.4 petrols especially given that they will be much kinder on the insurance. Unless you're doing crazy high mileage the cheaper insurance will offset the higher consumption.

    These Bravos are quite a reliable car and if anything does go wrong, parts are cheap and relatively easy to work on. While continental Europe all had AC, some basic spec models for Ireland do not have it so IMO make sure this one does!

    Agreed, hard to beat the likes of mid 00s golf 1.4 with as close to a full yrs nct, you'll pickup a clean enough one for about a grand, insurance the likes of 1300e with axa for a pure beginner, and let her on for similar money after a yr or whatever.
